Cure For Blondness...

I love Google Mail. It now has a remedy for those particularly frustrating blonde moments - you know, the ones where you remember you need to attach a file after you have clicked the "send" button...

There is an application in Google Mail which allows you to "undo send" for 10 seconds (you can choose 10 or 5 seconds) before sending your missive off into the dark void of cyberpace.

Google must have several blondes in its employ... I mean, how else would they know...?

I love this feature.

I already use it in another form at work; in Microsoft Outlook you can specify "Do Not Deliver before", which keeps the message in your Outbox until that time. I just wish it was preset to +15 minutes (I have to set it each time!).

I don't use it for blonde moments per se (though, rest assured I have them). Rather, I use it in case new information comes to light shortly after sending my messages, so I don't deluge people with emails.

We have that feature in our Pauline Cooperators' Ning. It allows me to edit my message... really cool!

Not just blondes! - I'm always pressing the send button before I've attached the file. Now I've tried to school myself to attach the file before I write the text. Trouble is, then I end up sending the file and no message!

Ellen:

There's a "Google Labs" extension for that too!

Thanks for the tip Mark - I'll investigate.
