The Daily Ping

Oops, here’s the attachment

How many times have you sent an e-mail where you intended to include an attachment, but simply forgot, and then had to send a separate note with the file attached? Well, if you use Eudora, now there’s a solution. The folks behind Spamnix are beta testing a new add-on that will search your outgoing messages for certain phrases that indicate a file should be attached (“attached,” “here is,” etc.) and warn you if you hit send before attaching a file.

Not a bad idea, and I suspect this is one that we’ll see co-opted and used in other e-mail products in the near future.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
