Attachment Reminder

Forgotten Attachments?

It's a common occurrence. Forgetting to attach a file can be quite embarrassing. Fortunately, the Attachment Reminder feature in Postbox helps prevent this from happening. Here's how:

Mentioning certain words like "attachment", "enclosed" and "pdf" will cause Postbox to bring up an attachment pane at the bottom of Compose window. Attempting to send the message without attachments will prompt a confirmation dialog which reminds you that you may have forgotten the attachment.

Customizing the Attachment Reminder

You can customize the words that trigger the attachment reminder in the Composition preferences window. Go to:

  • Preferences > Composition (or Tools > Options > Composition on Windows) and select the Keywords button. Here you can delete, edit and add the keywords for the Attachment Reminder.

Disabling the Attachment Reminder

If you prefer to disable the attachment reminder completely, go to Preferences > Composition (Tools > Options > Composition on Windows) and uncheck the option to check for missing attachments.
