-- now with attachment! [Apr. 25th, 2008|03:20 pm]

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"!

I do this more often than I care to admit myself. What's worse, I always realize I've done it the second I hit send, and then, I have the embarrassing follow-up to do.

Admittedly, I do it less often than I used to, I guess the frequency of sending attachments has played into that.
