Email reminders made easy

Ian White May 6th 2011

I often find myself emailing myself a reminder to do something when I’m back in the office.

It happens to me all the time especially when I am on a mobile phone. For instance, if I come across a great site that I would want to check out later from the desktop, I just send the URL to my own email account. If I have an idea that I need to remember, I jot it down in a message and email it to myself. The problem is, it gets lost amongst all the other emails I get in the intervening time. But I happened on a great service that helps me get my email reminders to myself just when I want them. FollowUpThen requires no set up, you can use it direct from your email program and it’s FREE.

Try a test now – click here and your email program will send you a message in 5 minutes.

With FollowUpThen, you can quickly setup custom email reminders using email itself. Just send a message to time-interval@followupthen.com and the service will send you a copy of the same email message after the specified time interval.

Here are some sample date formats that you might want to use while setting up email reminders:

6pm@followupthen.com (get a reminder at 6 PM exact)
6pmTomorrow@followupthen.com (get a reminder at 6 PM tomorrow)
10minutes@followupthen.com (get a reminder after 10 minutes)
3days@followupthen.com (remind me after 3 days)
tuesday@followupthen.com (remind me the next Tuesday)
nov29@followupthen.com (setup email reminders for a specific date)

The service even recognises time zones from the email headers so if you setup a reminder for 11 AM, you’ll be reminded as per your time zone.
