  1. Allow users who have a microphone or to record voice messages to send to the future

    I dont know about you guys, but i think it would be kinda cool to be able to not only send emails to the future, but also be able to send voice messages as well.

  2. Allow us to change the date we receive our letters

    So that if we accidentally put the wrong date we could change it.

  4. Have a 2nd address in case the first is returned by server.

    I've had the same yahoo address for years, but things change in time. It would be nice to have a second address for the system to try if the first is returned undeliverable by server.

    You can change your email and the email associated with letters already .

    The tricky issue is if you lose access to your old email and end up locked out an unable to log in – so make sure that you change your FutureMe account email before that happens.

  5. Allow us to 'LOCK' our messages

    So I don't get tempted to read the messages, I want to be able to LOCK THEM. I only want to read them on the day I have set them to be sent. Knowing myself, i will try and have a peak, and spoil the suprise!

  6. comment on public letters

    For the letters that are public maybe futureme could put in a comment area so people can comment on the letters. Then when the letter is sent the comments get attached as well and the person recieving can see people's reactions to his/her letter

  7. futureme.org via snail mail!

    You could send yourself or your friends a future letter, to be delivered via snail mail, on the date of your choosing. Much more romantic, don't you think?

  8. Let us specify time of day.

    If we could specify time of day and time zone, we could send email to Friday afternoon and say "Have a good weekend! Don't do anything I wouldn't do!"

  9. why the 30 days!

    The concept is great! I was just wondering why the 30 days? Your tag line says emails are more reliable than memory, so what if I have something to do the next week or say day after. Calenders are just too outdated! futureMe could be very useful! I have an idea and here I email it to myself for about a week later. And say what if I have loads of tasks to do the next day, I can just email it to myself! Cheers!

  10. Allow users to edit their messages.

    Say you just wrote a private email to yourself. Then you decide that you want to make it public, but you want to go back and take out some personal information first. Or maybe you just want to make some small changes without having to send yourself a new email. This could be considered cheating, but maybe you could only have the edit option available for 24 hours after creating the email or something.

  13. Anonymous Support

    Let us anonymously email contributors suffering hard times. They don't have our email, we don't have theirs, they just get a supportive msg.

    Interesting idea…a challenge for this would be to prevent abuse and try to ensure the feedback is indeed supportive and not pithy, mean, spam, etc…but I like the idea. Perhaps letter writers could check a box for “Allow Comments”, but we would have to build a moderation system which isn’t easy.

  14. Andriod App!

    There are more Andriod users than iPhone users. If that isn't enough of a reason - I am not sure what would be.

  15. Back up plan!

    Make sure there is a back up plan so that these letters won't be lost if this site is deleted or anything happens!

  17. make a facebook connect version

    it would be cool if I could login with my facebook account, and then not have to do any captchas or email verification...then FutureMe could just deliver letters to my facebook account inbox

  18. allow us to use HTML in the emails sent.

    Such as allowing us to change font size, bold text, change font colour, etcetera. Just a thought. :)

  19. futureme should add an option to send to many emails.

    What I mean is there should be an option to send many email addresses at a time so I could send one future letter to many people without having to do much work.

  20. Futureme should allow text messages

    Texts to your mobile phone are more personal and higher impact! I could even help fund it! Ash

    You can do this already by sending an email to your phone number @ your carrier – for example: 1231231234@txt.att.net

    If you search the web, you can find a list of domains for specific carriers.

    (Note that we do not do any special formatting for txt so if your note is too long…it will be broken up…We might do a an SMS-specific formatting feature at some point in the, ah hem, future…)

    (…also note that you’re responsible for data charges)
