A Snooze Button For Your Email

Check out my latest site, HitMeLater.

The service is simple.  Just forward any email to 24@hitmelater.com and it’ll be resent to you 24 hours later.

You can replace “24″ with any number or day. For example, forward it to 4@hitmelater.com and you’ll get it back four hours later. Send it to wednesday@hitmelater.com and you’ll get it back the first Wednesday morning after today.

I came up with the idea and built the site a couple of days ago when I was out of town, checking email on my phone.  Lots of emails I wanted to follow-up with but didn’t have the time at that moment.  No problem — just snooze it til later!

    I’d only like to see one adjustment; a privacy policy. Something that says there won’t be spam and how we can be sure our mail isn’t be read and such.

    Otherwise, I love it. If this was in place I’d be more willing to share the site.

    Ever heard of Flagging / Tagging emails?

    Hey Pud – so do you read all the emails?

    Thanks for putting this together & sharing it! I used to use (and depend on) the service Slugmail which was similar, but it’s gone now…

    I’m really glad to have found hitmelater–have already added all the days of the week@hitmelater.com to my e-mail contacts list.

    Do you weed out auto-replies?

    great idea – but just tried it, and it came back an extra hour late, with the following text on the bottom:
    Sent to 1@hitmelater.com 2 hours ago

    Seems that it should be a stickler for time, no?

    #10 harry – that was a small bug that has been fixed. sorry!

  11. 11 Barry August 14, 2008 at 3:07 pm

    Not a problem – thanks for the great tool!

    thank you for answering my question, “how and when exactly did HitMeLater started?”

  13. 13 Matt August 18, 2008 at 5:54 pm

    This is a terrific idea! The e-mail client we use at work doesn’t let you flag e-mails, so I’ve just been forwarding them to myself so I remember to follow up on them. No longer — thanks, Pud! (p.s. I found this blog after reading about http://www.fuckedcompany.com in some random magazine this weekend — funny how that worked out.)

    So – how do I sign up for the service? Definitely want to try it out, but I’m blond AND Polish so need some guidance.

  15. 15 Cinderella August 18, 2008 at 6:24 pm

    Never mind. Just saw the info. at top of page. It’s tough being me.

    best. idea. ever.

    Can you make it use the subject line for the time, so the address is Address Bookable?
