I've had this for ages, either because I added something in labs and forgot about it or because I am very special, and as it is not my work account, it has been useful exactly once, the single time that I noticed that I had this neat feature.

I would love for something like this to be developed for obsolete email programs like the one I use at work.

You know what's sad?

Even though the link in "incorporated into gmail" above went to a screenshot, I still clicked on the "okay" button in the screenshot even though I sort of knew it wouldn't do anything.

So this is being graduated out of Labs? I know that some people are really annoyed by it in Thunderbird, so they probably won't be too happy to hear that they have to turn it off in Gmail.
posted by muddgirl at 7:52 AM on May 5, 2011


What they need is something that can detect how many questions were asked in an email vs. how many are answered in the reply. I would love it if people received a dialog box that said:

"Look, there are three questions being asked. You responded with "Yes." This is in no way helpful, especially since none of the questions were yes/no type questions. Please go back and carefully read all questions and respond to each one and stop making this place even more dysfunctional than it already is. Asshole."

It would be nice to have this in Gmail, but it is really needed in Exchange.

EmpressCallipygos: I still clicked on the "okay" button in the screenshot

A long time ago, something crashed on my computer which resulted in a error box with nothing but the exclamation mark and a "OK" button, no comment, no title in the title bar. I took a screenshot of it, and then set it as my desktop background, untiled and centered.

One day, upon returning from break, I found one of the IT guys sitting at my desk, trying to click "cancel" on that error box, his frustration levels rising as he tried the Task Manager and found nothing in there causing it, he couldn't move the little window, hitting 'Esc' wouldn't get rid of it....

As for the "did you mean to attach something?" warning: I know it has been a feature in Gmail for at least a year, because it's my most hated feature.

I wouldn't say I hate it, but I certainly notice it and am a little amused by it; it only ever pops up when I say something like, "I don't feel overly attached to this idelogy" or something. When I actually attach something, I'm more likely to be all, "CHECK OUT THIS SWEET PIC OF A AWESOME CAT"

Not only does Postbox do this, but as soon as it thinks you need to add attachments, it creates a little attachment drag-and-drop box in your email message.
Another reason why I love postbox.

I remember when I was applying to tons of job a few years ago, I would occasionally forget to attach my resume even though my email said "Please see attached resume." Doh.

I've been getting this warning for a while in Thunderbird (it seems like forever but maybe since the last version increment?) and I like it. The first time I had that wonderful feel of amazement and WTF! How the heck did they know I wanted to send an attachment!?!. OMG Skynet! A few seconds later when I figured out the code I was kind of let down. However I'm so glad I don't have to support this feature. I can hear the whining now: "Windows1 always lets me know when I don't attach the attachment. How come it didn't let me know this time? GRAR GRAR GAR". Because you sent a blank email except for your 16 line signature (including image) and with the subject line "For you" you twit.

Sys Rq writes "'You are forwarding an email that was forwarded to you. Please don't.'"

In a worlds collide sort of way I'm often amazed that my circle of friends never have more than say two FWD:'s in a subject line and my father's circle often has over 80 character's worth of FWD:'s in their subject lines. We use these tools for very different things.

Oh man, I have liked this feature ever since I found it in Labs however long ago and turned it on. I like it because:

1. I enjoy shouting SEE ATTACHED! in email where I'm attaching someone, because I'm usually attaching it because either it's really important that I send it or because it is an awesome thing and I am happy.

2. I don't write "attached" very much otherwise, and every time I do and there's no attachment, I see the warning and go "mruh?" and then figure it out and then laugh and laugh and laugh.

It's easy enough to do something along these lines in Outlook. I've got a rule set up at work so that all my emails have a 1-minute delay before they're sent (unless they contain my sooper seekrit phrase), and any message that contains any variation on "attach" but doesn't contain an attachment gets a 2-minute delay. This is usually long enough for me to go "oh, wait, did I...?" and do the Outlook equivalent of the slow-motion dive and "nooooooo" to catch the message before it's sent.
posted by ZsigE at 10:28 AM on May 5, 2011 [4 favorites]


I never use attachments any more because so many of my corporate clients have mail servers that silently drop anything with an attached zipfile on the floor, so like two weeks later they're "hey, where's the work that was due two weeks ago?" and I'm "I sent it to you two weeks ago, but here it is again" and then a day later they're all "hey, why didn't you answer the email I sent yesterday?" and we can do that three or four times sometimes before I clue in to the fact that their mail server just assumes anything with a zipfile must be a virus and throws it away.

Also a lot of them recompress attached images into these shitty-looking four-color xerox approximations of the original, I guess because the fifty lines of lawsuit-threatening .sig file they require on every outgoing message would overload their mail capacity otherwise.

So now what I do is email them "I've uploaded such-and-such to the following URL" instead of attaching it to the email, and then forget to upload the file to my webserver. SO WHEN IS GMAIL GONNA COME UP WITH A FIX FOR THAT HUH?

That made me wonder if they were somehow different. Now I get that pocket square is more than just a handkerchief, it's a handkerchief neatly folded and protruding from a jacket pocket. And apparently, one can purchase a mock handkerchief pre-folded. Snotrag origami. I've never heard of such a thing. I always carry handkerchief's, but I don't even own a dress jacket anymore.

I've been using this as a GMail Labs addon for a while. The one problem is that a significant portion of my emails are along the lines of "excuse me, but you forgot to attach a file to this email you sent me" and then the warning box pops up and I go into a self-referential loop of ever-increasing attachment madness.
