NudgeMail: Change your inbox into todo list

A new service has launched today that aims to make e-mail management and reminders dead simple by integrating them seamlessly into your inbox.

It’s called NudgeMail and requires no plug-ins, no software downloads, no registration, and no accessing of other online services. It works through your existing inbox just by sending e-mails as you already do to everyone in your contact list.

The reason NudgeMail exists is to solve that problem most of us encounter of trying to manage the tens or hundreds of e-mails we get everyday. Many of them need prioritising and dealing with by day or hour X. So you end up leaving them unread, stuffing them in different folders, and usually forgetting about a few of them.
Nudgemail tries to solve that by allowing you to e-mail specific messages or reminders to yourself in the future. Here’s an example of how it works:

  1. Create a new email (or forward an existing one)
  2. Set the “to:” to
  3. Set the “subject:” to the day, date, or time when you want the NudgeMail to come back to you. For example, “Monday” or “Tomorrow” or “Oct 13″ or “2 hours” are all acceptable ways to send a NudgeMail
  4. Enter anything you want in the body of the email, then hit Send!

Alternatively you can send the mail to a day/date/time@nudgemail and it has the same result. You get the reminder or the forwarded e-mail when you asked for it. For example, send a message to and you’ll get a response one minute later.

There’s some advanced features to like the ability to snooze an e-mail for a specific period of time, request a message be sent in plain text, and view a complete history of your NudgeMails. As it’s only reliant on your e-mail account NudgeMail also works across all mobile devices and operating systems.

As for pricing, it isn’t set yet. The beta period is free for everyone and any business users who want to deploy it across a company will be offered a price according to how many users they need access for. For now, just try it out and see how it compares to your existing reminder and e-mail management system.


Matthew’s Opinion
I’m sure we’ve all got proven methods for managing e-mail and reminders, but NudgeMail has an advantage due to it not actually requiring anything other than your e-mail account. It’s completely transparent, which should appeal to business users who won’t need to train their staff on a new piece of software.

Pricing will be key to how well this does long-term. I don’t think you’ll get too many individual users willing to pay to use the service, but businesses will be more open if it proves to be secure and timely with its e-mails.
