Would you like to send an email in future to yourself or your friend, such that it is delivered at a future date like on 1st January 2010 … several unique email services make it possible.
Free Future Email Services
Here is a small collection such future emailing services…
- FutureMe – Specify the email address, subject, message and the date to be sent in the future. The drop menu shows the last year as 2036. You can also keep the email private or as a anonymous public one. No registration needed.
- FutureMail – lets you send yourself reminders, notes, or any information you want to have in the future. You can even share your future items in a public RSS feed or your own FutureMail Blog. Registeration required.
- Forbes Email Time Capsule – was designed as an experiment to allow readers to communicate with their “future selves.” and seems to be no longer available for more emails. “On Nov. 30, 2005, we sealed the time capsule, and copies of the application and data are now saved at Yahoo! and at Codefix Consulting.”
Before you send an email in future, ponder this…
Will these services exist till the period you want the email to be sent?
What is the guarantee that your email will be delivered?
What if your email address changes?
Do you trust your private / personal messages get into the right hands in future?
If there are other such services, let me know in comments and I will add them here. If you seem convinced – send a email in future this new year eve!
