Gmail Forgotten attachment detector

Do u have the habit of sending an email saying "please see the attachment" and forget to attach the file?

Gmail Labs has the solution, After logging to Gmail -> Settings-> Labs.

Go down and find the Lab "Forgotten Attachment Detector" . 

 

Google says "Prevents you from accidentally sending messages without the relevantattachments. Prompts you if you mention attaching a file, but forgot todo so." .

I tested this and it couldnt detect the mail with body . "please see the attachment" , but it was able to catch the sentence "I have attached a file".

May be in future google might come up with more  releiable mechanism to identify forgotten attachments. but its quite useful to enable this lab now.

Oic, i have already enabled this feature, but didn’t bother to test it 🙁

anyway, thanks for the info da…hmmm…you can’t take these guys for granted!

Yes man… It is still in the Lab (I think some one in google is doign it as a partime hobby) and they didnt enough time to setup an englist grammer parser. As and when there is more demand, they will upgrade the functionality..

Who is the owner of this site? I’d like to trade links. Looking at the amount of visitors that Nishanth’s Blog | Gmail Forgotten attachment detector gets and it’d be great for me to trade links. Got to get ahead of the competition and such. And, most of my traffic come from web sites just like this place.

You should wite a blog post about a recommendation of websites like Nishanth’s Blog | Gmail Forgotten attachment detector. I found your site two days ago when I was googling, however I am not really into the blog thing. I don’t think it’s because I do not enjoy blogs, but more than likely due to the fact that I’m a little ignorant to them. But blogengine is cool.

No need to be gloomy guys, there’s still a lot of positives to take.

I like Windows 7 is a big improvement compared to Vista. It may be a little harder to use than Window’s XP, but, it is more stable especially if you are running multiple applications.
