Just send it! EOM

Here's a handy little tip for Google Mail users. I frequently fire off emails to people with notes in the subject only. Google Mail always prompts,  "Are you sure..." and of course I always hit yes. However, if you enter EOM at the end of the note in the subject Google Mail will send on the email immediately.

Official post on the Google Mail blog here .


  1. isn't it easier to press enter when gmail prompts 'are you sure' and also less confusing for the recieving party?

  2. I think it is a matter of opinion, really. I find this easier; nobody seems to find it confusing at all.

  3. I don't see how using 'EOM' would be more confusing at all. In fact, if I didn't put it, wouldn't the person have to open the message to see that it's blank. Then they'd probably wonder why I didn't specify 'EOM'!
