  1. let users search for letters from the past.

    I wrote a letter in 2007 and have since forgotten my account number. I never received it, so I looked for it today. It was a pain having to go through the thousands of letters to find mine. and I gave up after 20 minutes of clicking "next, " "next, ", next...

    how about we type in words so we can find them faster?

  2. Allow a sender to respond to their public letter once sent, so readers have updates!

    I've been reading public letters, some sent as far as 12 years to the future! Many asking questions - Have I learned to play the instrument? Did my daughter go to college? Am I still at my job? Ect.. I would love to know the answers!

  3. have an option for permanently hiding a sent message in the delivery outbox

    I think this would be great for registered users who use the site frequently. Hiding the message instead of seeing it for delivery would be more exciting and you're more apt to forget about writing it.

  8. Keep the simple text forever, formatting would cheapen the idea!

    Go the way of Facebook, which everyone loves because there's no wacky colors or random awful backgrounds!

  9. Let Us Change The Date On Our Letters

    Some people (like me) accidentally entered the date for our letter either too late or too early. For me, I pressed the "Okay" button on accident so now, I have to wait till next year.

  10. Allow users to change the arrival date of their letters

    I've sent lots of letters and now I've ended up thinking that I either want to wait a longer or shorter amount of time on many of my letters :(

  11. Retrieve letters sent before an account was made

    Do some scouting, and make it possible to retrieve letters that I sent before I made my account! Like, for example, if ABC makes a letter, THEN creates an account, he can't see the letter he sent and I feel really lost without it :( So if we signed up using ABC@gmail.com, then we should be able to have the letters sent to ABC@gmail.com. Please?

  12. Allow periodic reminders at set intervals.

    Setting a goal is great but tracking your progress is critical if you're ever going to achieve the goal.
    Allow the ability to set reminders (5 year goals could have a yearly reminder, 1 year goals could be monthly or quarterly).

    Allow users to update the status to track their progress.

  13. Change the Send Date

    If a future email is supposed to arrive on the day of a special occasion (such as a wedding) and the date is later changed, it would be nice to alter the date that the email is to be sent. The same 90 day restriction would apply.

  20. Have a video of you self talking to you in the future

    Wouldn't it be fun to have your past self talk to you in the future! It would be like a personal mentor that checks you time to time. Believe me I think it will be awesome!
