-- now with attachment! [Apr. 25th, 2008|03:20 pm]
Beemer
There are a number of philosophical reasons why email attachments are evil and lame, but I have given in. It's just the easiest way to get files from A to B in many cases.

Here's what we need now: I want every mail client, including (especially!) web-based ones to do a very simple scan of a message's text when the 'send' button is pushed. If I wrote the word "attach" (or "attached" or "attaching"), and the message has no attachments? Pop up a dialog and ask me if I have forgotten the attachment before sending it. Because man am I tired of sending email saying "oops, forgot the attachment"!

Re: attachment disorder?

I now use the web-based interface for email, at least if it's halfway recent. Every few months I fetchmail all the older email and add it to my archive, which I access using MH. Because I am insane that way.
