Situation: You’re up in the wee hours of the morning (around 1 or 2am) and find this oh-so cool YouTube video that you want to e-mail to your friends.
However if you send off the link at that time of the night everybody knows when you sent it. You are basically admitting to all “Yes, I was up at two in the morning doing stupid stuff on my computer.” Oh, the ridicule. Oh, the shame.
But you’re just itching to send off that e-mail now.
What to do?
But maybe you don’t use Thunderbird. Heck, you might not even use a mail client at all.
LetterMeLater to the rescue. This service will schedule send-outs of e-mails when you want them to go out.
“But won’t the recipient know it was from LetterMeLater?”
Nope. No matter what e-mail service you use, scheduled mails all appear as if they came from your e-mail address directly. It doesn’t matter if you use Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Gmail, ISP-based mail, whatever-mail. Doesn’t matter.
There are both free and paid options for LetterMeLater. The free version allows for 30 scheduled mails per month with a maximum of 10 recipients per message. You can even use file attachments in the free version (very cool). The paid version allows for a whole lot more.
The paid version is $19.95 yearly. Not a bad deal considering all that you get. But the cool part is that you can test the service immediately and see if it’s your thing or not without any cash at all.
Of course, LetterMeLater could be used for more than just hiding when you actually send e-mails. It can be used for notification purposes, sending text messages to cell phones (which it does support) and more.
“Are there any ads sent with the mails from LetterMeLater?”
Not a one.
If you were looking for scheduled send-outs of e-mails without having to change mail service and/or e-mail client LetterMeLater is definitely what you were looking for.
