I think there is no need for this because you have undo button in labs. So if you miss that word and send message, you can click undo in about 3-4 secs when message was send

it would be nice, but a fully context sensitive spellchecker would understand names anyway

a search kinda works : google.com/search?q=hello,+my+ ...
gives me "Showing results for hello, my name is robert." :-D

I like anything that helps me from sending out messages with typos.

Seperate signatures for every email adress – maybe even with HTML support – would be a really good new feature!

I would appreciate such a feature.

Again watching users and you'd see that some people copy and paste names from the To line to the message box out of scariness of misspelling the names. So I wouldn't be surprised if it gets implemented.

What else do users do? mummm right now possibly copying and pasting these comments to put them on my FB feed ... was implemented via social plugins a couple of weeks ago ... humm going back to my comment to see who has responded ... Philipp please the email notification ... and on and on and on.

Yes! This is a perfect candidate for a Labs feature, and I would certainly turn it on in my client.

Not necessary.
