Just when I was talking to Sai this morning, he was typing a mail that is supposed to have an attachment. Right before he pressed the Send button, I reminded him to attach the file.
So, this must have happened to you many times… How many times you would have sent a follow up mail with the message “Sorry missed the attachment”.
Just a little thought on how to handle this scenario – to mail client developers: (Sai, I already told you this. So please skip :))
- When ‘Send’ button is pressed scan the message body
- Look for words related to attachment – like ‘I have attached’, ‘attachment’, ‘Please refer to attachment’, etc.
- If found, have a confirmation popup, that asks the user whether he wishes to attach any document with the mail
- This will help the user attach the stuff and then post the mail
If this feature is available as a plugin in Thunderbird please let me know. Otherwise, inform the Thunderbird developers.
