I like all of the effort they are putting into releasing new labs features in Gmail! Keep it up. :)

[Moved from "New in Gmail Labs: Forgotten Attachment Detector" – Tony]

Gmail has added an option to Gmail Labs called, Forgotten Attachment Detector. "Prevents you from accidentally sending messages without the relevant attachments. Prompts you if you mention attaching a file, but forgot to do so."

I've enabled both these straight away. Great additions.

I haven't gotten the attachment detector to work! I enabled it, saved the changes, it shows as "enabled" after a restart... but even a message like "I attached an attachment because attaching attachments is fun!" doesn't trigger it. How do you get this to work?

"See attached" (which I use all the time) works too.

Above 7 comments were made in the forum before this was blogged,

Seems like the attachment detector could be solved by *send in the future* feature.... By default schedule all newly composed email to be send 5 seconds after you hit send, and usually you will catch yourself with mistakes like missing attachment issues, etc. Plus tons of other uses.
