  1. My trick to not forget to attach files is to attach them as soon as I write “Attached please find…”. That way, it’s done and I can focus on the rest of the e-mail without having to worry about remembering to do it before hitting “Send”.

  2. Happens quiet often, especially when you want to relax after a tiring job. You send, sit down, enjoy your time and bumm! You suddenly realise you didn’t attach the file.

  3. Sounds familiar… 😉

    Luckily, I use Thunderbird as my mail program, and this nice little program reminds me when I write something like “CV” or “Attachment” that I have not attached anything…. saved me quite a few Oops mails!
