  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • Write to strangers

              Hello, so crazy idea. You have a plataform with thousands of email adresses and there are a lot of people that sometimes need someone to open up to. Why dont allow users to send an email to strangers (that gave permission to receive emails from strangers) and then allow them to answer back. The receiver would be given the choice to decline or accept the letter. In case of declining it would be sent to another user. It would be completely annonimous and the parties could only answer once so if one of them stop responding the chain would break…

              • 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!

                  • 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?

                    • Blocking Dates

                      Allow us to block out the date of the letter in case we don't want to see when the letter is coming.

                            if their email address did exist before advice date, it should be possible.

                              • sending futureme videos on the emails as well so we can then receive a more personal message as well as a formally written one

                                if we could attach a video as we can an image then we could receive more of a personal video into the future too ! we could either have a ready made one or just create one on the spot via webcam

                                  • New Layout

                                    I find it really confusing and difficult to find when my next FutureMe should be arriving. They don't seem to be in any specific order?
                                    a really prefered the old layout, it was a lot clearer.

                                    • 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!

                                        • Allow us to read full public letters, instead of just the first few lines

                                          The best letters are usually the longest ones and it sucks when we can't read them. I want to be able to read them whole. After all, if the sender allowed them to be public and anonymous, why not
