  1. You’ve tried it? I didn’t even know about it, haha. Ten seconds is a short time for someone in panic mode. Reminds me of delivery groups that give you 3 minutes to change your order when in fact they don’t answer your call until 6 minutes or longer after their phone starts ringing.

    • I’ve been using that option for a couple of years now. There’s also an option that flags you if you mentioned an attachment in the email text yet didn’t attach anything (very helpful, as I constantly forget to upload files). And, oh, there’s another tool that checks your sobriety or something. I don’t remember clearly, but I think it asks you to make a simple computation when you’re about to send an email during midnight or the wee hours of the morning. Not quite useful to me though…
