NudgeMail

Have you ever forgotten to do something – forgot to pay a bill on time, keep a luncheon appointment or carry the birthday cake home?   NudgeMail can help remind you of these tasks so that you don’t have to!

NudgeMail is an email reminder service that makes it as easy as possible for people to write themselves notes and have those notes sent back to their email inboxes at pre-determined times.

 One of the good things about NudgeMail is that you don’t have to sign up or even register to start using the service.

All you have to do is type up a note or forward an existing email to NudgeMail and in the subject line type in a desired date and time to get the reminder, and relax, because NudgeMail is never late and it never forgets, and, it doesn’t cost you a rupee! Check out the NudgeMail service at nudgemail.com. More details over there.
