  1. 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.

    • 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 ;)

      • 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!

              • Let us look at our unsent messages and edit them

                Sometimes we don't know what we wrote and maybe re-wrote it twice.

                • 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?

                  • Allow us to send voice messages to the future!

                    I think it would be cool to see how your voice has changed. Also you could allow us to send video messages, to see how different we look.

                    • 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…

                      • 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.

                        • 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!

                                  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 :(

                                        • allow users to send a letter from their favourite email client rather than from your website.

                                          The user could email their letter to "me@futureme.org", from within gmail or Outlook. They would be able to attach anything they choose, and use any kind of formatting.

                                          Perhaps the first line of the email could specify, in a certain format, the date of future delivery and the public visibility status.
