Email time machine...nudgemail.com

I'm not passing judgement, but a whole lot of us use email as a reminder..a reminder that tends to get lost in the masses of other emails. Nudgemail is simply a service that will accept emails from you and resent them back at your chosen date and time.


It's not meant as a way to send spam to other people at a certain time, but rather a way to get an important email back into the today section of your inbox. For example:

Forwarding an email to tomorrow@nudgemail.com is self explanatory. You can also do things like jan5@nudgemail.com to put that task off till the new year.

If you really need a nag-o-gram you could also set it for hourly@nudgemail.com or weekly, monthly or yearly. It also accepts everymon@nudgemail.com or numerical dates like 07022011@nudgemail.com to perhaps have a reminder to send me a birthday greeting..hint hint...

With a large collection of variations available, I'm sure it won't be long until someone comes up with a VBA script for outlook to ask nudgemail to resend anything that comes in while set in vacation mode.

The nudge commands don't have to be in the address like either, it could be sent to nudge@nudgemail.com and the subject could be the desired time frame.

Oh yeah, busy at the moment, send it to snooze@nudgemail.com and it will come back in an hour...the snooze time is of course configurable.
