Guide Review - LetterMeLater - Email Scheduling Service
Alright, this time I did write the message when first it came to mind and saved it as a draft. Not much better. The draft is still in the "Drafts" folder, way past its due date.
Do you sometimes wish you could write an email now and have it delivered later? Of course, email programs have a hard time doing that since they would have to be running and online at the right time. Web-based email services should be able to deliver scheduled emails on time, however. Shouldn't they?
LetterMeLater is no fully blown email service, but it does allow you to schedule emails, and it does so well. Not only can you write messages (using HTML formatting if you wish) now and have them delivered at any precise time until 2038, you can schedule messages to repeat at an interval, too. For cycles outside the norm, you can schedule individual dates, which is not ideal but might work.
LetterMeLater may not sport the smoothest outfit, but it has two features lending very smooth and helping hands: an address book that imports from your current email program and natural language recognition for dates and times. You can schedule messages "30 minutes" from now, or "next Friday", for example.
Of course, you can edit or cancel schedule emails. LetterMeLater can even mail you a copy three days before the delivery date as a reminder. If you want to prevent yourself from changing gears, you can also hide individual scheduled messages, however.
Unfortunately, you cannot include attachments with your LetterMeLater messages. Ways to submit messages by email or to access the archive of sent messages from a desktop email program would also be nice.
While it's great that LetterMeLater lets you use any From: email address, it could verify these addresses more strongly.
