Allow us to change the date we receive our letters
So that if we accidentally put the wrong date we could change it.
So we just added a feature where you have a 48 hour “grace period” during which you can change your letter date (or anything else about the letter)…
…but after that your letter is locked and we are going to keep it that way since the surprise from the past is an important part of what FutureMe offers.
No I was totally surprised I received this 10 years after 12 year old me sent it... Had completely forgotten and that made it so special.

Hey, I just wrote a letter but selected the wrong date and wish to change that. Pls help!!!!
I need this feature right now, please
I sent a letter several years ago but now I discovered that the date I set was wrong. Also I have changed my email account and am in desperate need of some information written in that letter. Would you please make that 2024 letter available for me? It really helps! My username is Maker5000.
i sent an email to myself long time ago and i never receive anything yet and I'm sure that i wanted it to be sent to me in 2014, can you help please??
A grace period of a week... or even just ONE HOUR so that you can correct a mistake if you suddenly realize you selected the wrong day, month or year.
That would be awesome, thanks!
People using this site must not forget that the developers, organizers, and owner of the website does this as a FOR FREE accepting donations, as well working their own full-time jobs. SOme of the comments on here sound like life or death. The site owes you nothing; it is FREE and anyone can use it. If the letters were that important you should have printed them off and stored them with someone else. I think its a great idea and lot easier than having an in-box and save file just because you don't want to forget some things, and here it is. Just write your letter and they email you back. ITS A FREE SERVICE, quite novel, entertaining and helpful for most. this is JMO
Maybe it should be so you can change when the letter is sent if it's only a few days after you wrote it so you can fix mistakes but still can't cheat.
I'm going to start crying I swear to god I will flip out if we can't change the date that we send our letters to. I have been writing letters to my 20 year-old self for three months and I accidentally sent my letter for one day like last week a year before all of the other ones and I don't remember what I wrote so I dont want to lose it but like this letter needs to have it's date changed this is so important to me.
I accidentally put December 1, 2014, instead of December 1, 2013. Is there anyway to adjust the date.
Please, I really need to change my date very urgently. Can you do something about it? :(
I sent an important message on the same day i made the account just to test it out and it never came. What gives!

Two months ago I ended a relationship and sent a future message to my ex. I wrote about how I loved her and what I was willing to do not to lose her. I wrote about what I expected for our future and how I felt, and feel, facing the end.
We ended our relationship because my ex was moving back to her city and we couldn't be together anymore because of the distance.
The date I intended to choose to letter's delivery was September 13th. Exactly two months after our relationship ended.
I don't know why it was registered to be delivered only on September 13th of 2014. A year from now!!
I really need this letter to be delivered soon. The perfect timing would be 09/13/2013!
I would also like to thank for this wonderful tool you guys developed. I'm a future.me user since 2009. The possibility of writing to the future helped me to achieve goals and improve some aspects of my life.
Please, try to help me!! I would appreciate a lot.
Face this as the opportunity of uniting a young couple that love each other, but was teared apart due to destiny's will.
It's very important and, if it's possible, it will change my future.

I sent my letter for the wrong date.
I sent it a year after the date I wanted!
I need so much to change the delivery date.
Please provide it for us!!
Please make it possible to change the date!! So annoying...why wouldn't u be able to? That just doesn't make sense.
Hello, I wanted to send my new mail- and facebook-passwords to myself, so i won't check my facebook for some days. But now I see that I've send them to January 2014. This is more than awkward. Is there a way to get that mail sooner? Haven't seen a "Support"-Link anywhere... Why the fuck does it say 2014 by itself anyway?!
yes please! I need this letter in one month, I really do, but for a single mistake I won't get it. I can't write another email with the same inspirational intonation, so please, let me change the receiving time...
I was so frustrated to write myself a couple of notes for December of this year, to celebrate the fact that the world DIDN'T end. But after sending them, I realized they accidentally went to December 2013. Cripes.
And the worst part of all was that I couldn't simply change the date the letter was being sent to. This should be such a simple editable feature. I ended up having to rewrite my letters, and will now be hearing those other one a year late.
Please, please allow the date to be changed. If I could have at least opened my letter to copy the contents of it, I could have resent it again. But instead I had to write 2 letters from scratch.
How about allowing users to actually open and edit the contents of their letters if it is still the same day that it was written, so that we could add a post script or something as well?
made 2.5 years ago :( seems this probably will never happen
