Whatever tricks us into believing mentioning a file an email is the same as attaching it, Attachments Forget usually provides simple reminding help. When you click "Send", Attachments Forget springs into action. Have you mentioned "attachment", "enclosure", "included here" or something similar but failed to attach any file? A friendly but firm reminder dialog alerts you to the issue.
Maybe the dialog could offer to attach the missing files and the promptly deliver the message, but either way the embarrassing error is quickly corrected.
Thankfully, Attachments Forget lets you customize the list of keywords and phrases checked to your tastes, needs or language. Unfortunately, you cannot use wild-card characters and just specify "attach*" instead of spelling out all the possibility.
Of course, Attachments Forget could also be even smarter in its analysis and say, for example: "You talk about two attachments, an image of a lake, which I found, and a map, which I cannot find. Do you want to search for that map now? (May I suggest one of Lago Maggiore?)"
