Google Attachment Warnings

While composing an email this AM – I dragged in a screenshot of a page and mentioned in the email text to “…the screenshot attached.” When I tried to send the message – I got this alert:

I should have expected Google would have some logic to analyze certain phrases in my email messages but I have to say I was still a little surprised – especially since the image was actually correctly attached. Either way – it was nice – as I just had an issue with someone forgetting to attach something to another email which then caused a slew of back and forth “did you get it this time” messages.

Thanks Google!

Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9) and Gmail Fix?

After upgrading to Mac OS X Mavericks – I have had nothing but problems with Mail.app handling my Gmail accounts. I read that it might be addressed by making sure the “All Mail label is not hidden” – but that did not do anything for me. My message count is off, my message #s are not coming in correctly, my filters are not working, and I am pretty unhappy with what I am seeing.

Until we get a fix from Apple (hopefully soon!) – I have decided to fix my problems by just using good ol’ gmail (web). Let’s hope we get a Mac OS X 10.9 update soon!
