INet: Google adds email sobriety test

Google has acted to protect its users against a seemingly widespread problem with email: Once you’ve pressed the send button it’s out in the wild. And some times you might have written something you shouldn’t have send to that person.

Seemingly for many this phenomenon occurs more frequently at certain times of the week / day – let’s say late Friday night.

From now on you can setup your Gmail account that at certain times of the day / night you will be asked some Math questions before an email is send out.

We call this feature the Google EST (Email Sobriety Test).
