  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.

    We are excited to launch this feature.

    Everyone should be aware that this is a feature that will only be available to Premium users, which costs $5/year for your first year and $10 each additional year. I hope you all agree this will be worth it!

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  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. 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?

  7. 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. Adding videos

    Be able to add videos to your email - for example if you wanted to take a video or your family life and pets, then you can see it in 63 years! That would be pretty awesome ;)

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. 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. :)

  13. 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.

  14. 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)

  15. Resend email every year option

    I think it would be nice, if you could have an email send year after year. Like "Today your kid took his first steps" and be reminded of that date every year.

  17. DELIVERY DATE CHANGE

    Please, provide the feature to change delivery date of our letters.

    In my case, I don't know why, the letter's delivery date was inputed to the wrong year.

    We would really appreciate if you guys could do this for us.

    I'm dying to have my letter delivered!

  20. Random send dates

    It would be cool to have a random date option. You could click Random Future Date or something and then you could "refine" the randomness, for lack of a better way of stating it. You could say, you know, Random date in a certain year, random day in a certain month, random WEEKDAY in a certain month or a certain year, random WEEKEND in a certain month or a certain year, et cetera. You could even go as far as to be able to highlight a specific week to pick a random send date for. That would make it more…
