Basic Text Analytics in E-Mail & Other Applications

I have wondered why many of the web-based or desktop-based e-mail providers do not include some smartness in their software. Some basic if not simple (to implement) things are:

Trying to send a mail without an attachment when the mail text says that there is an attachment.

Extracting meeting schedule information – date, time, place or web conference info and subject of meeting, from the mail text.

GMail has introduced some smartness into its service for detecting #1. I am not sure about #2 above, whether it is implemented or not. May be some beta version of it is already there. But I got curious today on the pop-ups like the following that I got.

But it remains to be seen how good their implementation is and one can never get a perfect one!!
