I was quite surprised and found this one really clever:

Although I wonder what else Google reads in my emails :o

Yes, it's very useful.  My email client, Mulberry, has had it as an option for many years.

Thunderbird has similar heuristics.

Can be done with a client-side javascript check btw, so doesn't necessarily mean "google reads your emails" (though of course they do datamine heavily).

I've been using Thunderbird for many years. Can't remember ever having seen that. But then I never read the help file ;)

I've definitely had it say something along the lines of "hey, did you forget an attachment?" before sending mails :)

It'd be nice if they picked up the pace a little, I've been waiting on a 3MB attachment I sent myself for an hour now.
