Follow Up Then

More and more of the stuff we need to do arrives via our email Inbox.

For many of us, it has become our main ‘tasks list’.

‘Inbox Zero’ is that joyful state where we have dealt with everything in our Inbox. Llike Zen monks, we can celebrate ‘the empty mind’

FollowUpThen is a simple (and free) servce that can help us manage our email and reach the nirvana of ‘inbox zero’.



How often do we receive a message, don’t have time or the information we need to deal with it, and think to ourselves “I’ll deal with that later’. We carefully leave it in our inbox – and then forget about it.

By replying to the sender immediately, with a bcc to followupthen, we will automatically get a reminder email at the time we specify.



Sending an email sometimes feels likes tossing a message in a bottle into the ocean. Who knows whether it ever reaches its destination?  What if your important message is sitting around in their overflowing ‘inbox’? How can you keep track of the things you are waiting to hear back about?

By sending a cc to, you and the recipient will both receive a reminder email at the time you specify.

You can also send an email directly to followupthen. You will receive a reminder email when you specify.

There are a number of other options for the time frames you can specify.

You can try it now, without even going to their website.
