11 Ways to Send Emails In the Future
By on August 18th, 2008

In the past we have covered how you can delay sending a email from Outlook, but that would only come in handy when you have your PC turned on at the time you want to send the emails.

With several services popping up everyday, there are several ways in which you can send emails to yourself or others in the future, few of the reasons to do that would include sending yourself reminders (we have a talked about a better way to do that with Google calendar) or sending birthday or anniversary wishes to friends.

    I still haven’t used any of these but I’d like to mention an interesting feature of HitMeLater.

    You can replace ’24′ with any number or day. An email to 6@hitmelater.com and you’ll get it back six hours later. Send it to friday@hitmelater.com and you’ll get it back to the first friday morning after today. :)

    hey; great list,
    but the title is confusing me a bit. Are you a native english speaker? i think “send mails to the future would sound better.
    (I can be contacted by mail if someone wants to discuss this with me)

  • Lauren

    Thanks for the list! LetterMeLater.com is definitely by far the best.
