This little gem does a number of interesting things for me these days:

  • Reminds me when I forget to attach files that I promised in my e-mail.
  • Alerts me that more than one e-mail exists in an e-mail when I reply so I can reply-all instead.
  • Parses the name of the person (works best on people in my address book), and adds a salutation with their name.
  • Let’s me keep a set of standard templates to insert with a single mouse click (great for common responses like confirmation of article submissions).

There are other features, but these are the ones that made me shell out $19.99 for the add-in…its worth more than than in a single day.
