Checking Attachments

When you click on Send, Anti-Oops! checks that you haven’t forgotten to include an attachment. If there is no file attached, Anti-Oops! has Antidote analyze your message. If it finds that an attachment is mentioned, Anti-Oops! alerts you by opening a window directly in your email program. You can then stop sending the message and attach the missing file, or go ahead and send it without the attachment.

Anti-Oops! will show you the part of your message that suggests that you may have forgotten an attachment. In the example on this page, the clue is “I am attaching a file”.

  • If the phrase that triggers an alert is a sentence automatically added by your email program, or you don’t think it needs to be corrected, you can tell Antidote to ignore it in the future.
  • To enable or disable the verification of attachments or to tell Antidote to ignore certain text, see the Anti-Oops! panel section in the Settings chapter.
  • If you don’t want Anti-Oops! to check a message, hold down the Shift key when you click on Send in your email program.
  • Remember: Anti-Oops! applies to messages written in English. The optional French-language module lets you also check messages written in French, but for those written in another language, you’re on your own!
