        • Let us search the archive if we can provide a valid e-mail!

          I deleted an e-mail by accident, but would really love to reread what I wrote...

          • Let the user Reschedule his previous mails or Change Recipients

            There arises a possibility that mail we intend to send to a close friend of ours is no longer someone whom we can trust. In that case we wouldn't want him to receive the mail we have scheduled him to receive.
            So it would be great if Futureme allows us modify recipients of the mail after the mail has been scheduled.
            Another requirement can be of modifying the Date to which mail is to be sent.Such situation can arise when we realize that the earlier planned moment was not the right moment...and it has to be changed.
            I hope Matt…

            • Make the "send to" date a users choice drop down

              This would allow you to continue with the " one you send it , no editing" concept. If the users can't get it right they are only sending it to them selves so what's the big deal if they send it to the wrong date ? Go back and send it again to the correct date but having the choice of date to send to would make this service awesome.

              • Allow users to hide their letters

                Allow users to hide their future letters so the user will (kinda) forgot that they had sent a letter and will be surprised when they receive one. And of course it is permanent and cannot be undo.

                  • allow users to choose a past date to email their past selves.

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

                    • Allow uusers to send messages at certain times of the day in specific time zones.

                      What if it's Dec 2012 in America, but Jan 1 2013 in Australia already? There may a possibility of letters not being sent on the correct dates due to differences in time zones.

                      • General Feedback

                        Sorry for the name, I'd like to stay anonymous!

                        I would be quite happy to pay a small amount for this service - and by small amount, I mean small. Say I used this site for the rest of my life, posting letter after letter, and I mean, even if I didn't, there is no way I'd pay per letter. I might consider paying per year, but nothing over £5 - I'm English, so I don't know what that translates to in dollars.

                        I do, very much, like the idea of sending snail mail letters through the post and I…

                        • let us edit posts in case we've rambled on about exes etc which will upset future us! D:

                          Basically future us doesn't want a load of e-mails about how idk, say it's futureHelen, she doesn't want a load of e-mails going Helen <3 Dave when she's with Gary now. So the ability to edit would be muchos helpful.

                            I deleted my letter from my account here and it's still showing up via google results. Is there a way to permanently delete it?

                            • Fix the functionality of the attachment feature.

                              Greetings! For some time I have tried to attach pictures without success; I'm talking about over a year now without getting it to work! I've tried in Opera, IE, Firefox, and Chrome. I've also tried from different computers and with internal and external web cameras.

                              Also, the "attach file" function does not work, either. This would actually be preferable, but I've been working as of late with the web camera option as at least I get a prompt.

                                  • education version

                                    I would like to see an education version of this for schools. one where we don't have to see language issues on the front page, etc. I think this is a great idea and this could really be something big for schools to leverage.

                                        Add some way (if possible, of course) to have the email delivered even if FutureMe.org dies/stops working/whatever you call it when a website/organization stops...being. Anyways, have some way for the emails that were written before it shut down be delivered, even after it shuts down. Maybe through another organization?? That would be cool/

                                        • Tenho uma dúvida

                                          Oi estou pensado em fazer meus alunos escreverem uma carta para si mesmos, para ser aberta daqui a cinco anos, gostaria de ter certeza de que os mesmos receberiam, gostaria de saber como fazer isso e se é necessário contribuir com alguma coisa.
