Mail Me Later
Mail Me Later sends mail back to you at a specified time.
Mail Me Later is by inviation only right now.
You tell MML when to send you your mail back by the email recipient you use:
A mail sent to wednesday@mail-me-later... will be sent back to you next Wednesday.
Ways to express future mail time
Mail Me Later can accept the time to send the email back in a coupe of formats:
Time today (HHMM)
If you mail to a 4 number account like 0923@mail-me-later... then the system will use
the first two numbers (09) as the hour and the rest as the minutes. Hours are being
expressed in a 24 hour format. Should the time be in the past then the email will be sent
A mail at a future date can be specified via 6 numbers. March 15 2011 would be 110315@mail-me-later....
Date and Time (YYMMDDHHMM)
If you enter 10 numbers then Mail Me Later will assume that these indicate a future date and time. Two digits
each for Year, Month, Day, Hour and Minute.
A day of the week can be specified either by the full word or first three letters. e.g: MON@mail-me-later... or Monday
Optionally you can add a time after the weekday. Valid times are morning
(9:00pm ), noon (12:00), evening (6:00pm) or a four digit number in 24hour format.
Sundaynoon@mail-me-later... will mail you next Sunday at 12:00
THU1500@mail-me-later... will mail you next Thursday @ 3pm
mon@mail-me-later... will mail you next Monday, at the current time of day
Instead of a weekday you can also simply use 'tomorrow'. Without a time you will get a mail back after 24 hours.
Alternative the mail can be sent after a specified time has passed.
You specify the number and time units to mail you after. The number
can be numerical or up to 12 the words that correspond to the number.
The time units can be one of the following:
(The s in end of the time unit is optional)
The following are all valid time specifactions:
MML came into being since I used similar tools and liked them allot.
When those failed for me it was time to implement them myself.
