Although not as direct as the approach I’ve long though useful, Google Labs has introduced the Gmail Goggles feature. In their words:
When you enable Mail Goggles, it will check that you’re really sure you want to send that late night Friday email. And what better way to check than by making you solve a few simple math problems after you click send to verify you’re in the right state of mind?
This is almost what I’ve proposed to colleagues in the past: namely an afterhours finger-prick device than can detect trace amounts of system inhibitors, like, say, alcohol and refuse to launch your MTA. Your precious mail would be held until morning, at least. Whereupon you can review it and make the appropriate changes (read: deletions) that a professional adult would make.
Kudos to Mike for pointing this excellent innovation out. If only it worked over IMAPS too.
