This week MacSparky is sponsored by SaneBox, the email service that adds power features to any email system. With SaneBox at your back, you add a powerful set of email tools that can work in just about any email client. SaneBox will automatically sort your email for you, defer your email to a more convenient time, set reminders, and automatically forward email.
One of my favorites is SaneReminders. With SaneReminders you can copy (or blind copy) an email to some time period at SaneBox.com. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org. SaneBox will then keep track of that email and, if you don’t get a reply in a week, SaneBox will send you a reminder. This is a great way to keep track of email related tasks.
I use this feature a lot. So often I need to keep track of matters through email before they raise to the level of an OmniFocus project. SaneReminders are perfect for this. I send the email, activate SaneReminders, and SaneBox does the rest.
You can also use this system to send your future self time-sensitive reminders. For example, you could send an email to Feb14.email@example.com with the subject line, “Buy Valentine Gift for Sweetheart” and SaneBox will send you the reminder at the designated date and time. SaneBox explains reminders further on their website.
Best of all, because you’re a MacSparky reader, you can get $10 off. Try SaneBox today.
