Have you actually attached that file

Added on: Friday 4th June 2010

I guess everybody at some time or another has sent an email saying a file is attached but forgotten to attach the file before sending. If you use Google Mail that may be a thing of the past.

I clicked the Send button in my Gmail account just now and got this message come up.

Google Mail warning

Neat - I got interrupted whilst writing it and had completely forgotten about the file I meant to send.

This got me thinking whether it would pick up different variations of content. It works with attached is, find attached and I've attached but File Attached doesn't.

I tried to find references to it on Google or anywhere else but can't. If anyone can find a definitive list of what words or phrases are picked up then let me know.
