followupthen3

Email is a wonderful tool, no question. Not just for talking to people across vast distances, but also to keep track of what’s going on in your life. But it can also be a bit of a burden, especially if you’re one of the unlucky ones who can’t cope with the number of messages you get. But now there’s a simple solution which may help manage email overload.

The idea is pretty cool, and perfect for those who need to add a bit more order to their lives without having to use new tools. Because it’s all based around your familiar email interface, there’s zero learning curve. You can set the service to notify both sides of an email conversation via cc (carbon copy), or just you via bcc. You can even sen㱋ݘr耀ƅinder messages to your phone via SMS if you’re on the go.

The service offers a free plan, and then premium plans which offer more features such as calendar integration and SMS reminders. The premium plans start at $2 a month, so it’s not hugely onerous to get more value. We like the idea of this a lot.

Follow Up Then is a tool which sits alongside your email program and lets you schedule tasks using messages. So for instance you can schedule a reminder to do something by sending a cc email to followupthen.com for a particular period. Sending an email message to [email protected] will send you a reminder the next day, [email protected] will send the reminder in 2 weeks. And so on.
