Gmail Blog - Forgotten Attachment Detector

Most of us has been there, we send an email only to realize moments after we send it that we forgot to attach the file. Worse yet, the mistake is only discovered when the recipient emails you back hoping that you respond before the deadline passes.

That may all be a thing of the past with Google's new Forgotten Attachment Detector. If you turn on the detector, you get a warning message if you forget to attach a file and you mention it in the email.


"The first one I worked on was something we had been experimenting with a few years ago here inside Google but had never launched -- a Forgotten Attachment Detector. Many of us have experienced the embarrassment of having sent a message without attaching the file we said we were going to attach. Turn on the Forgotten Attachment Detector in Labs, and you'll get an alert if you mention attaching a file but forget to do so."
