How do they get the e-mails to delay being sent?

Must be a Microsoft Exchange server. It does that naturally.

The sad thing is some people are already using this to remind themselves to do stuff.
2005-12-19 10:35:57 AM  
Wow, very original idea. I mean, I'm glad that someone is using their creative power to find a new use for bleeding-edge technology like HTML forms.

Wasn't a similar concept just floating around? Was that sent 2 weeks into the future and appeared here?
2005-12-19 10:38:30 AM  
I know ive had this hotmail address for a long time, but i doubt i will be the gangstarroflove when im 60...

But, I suppose, you never know.

And if this site is around to send out emails in 30 years, they will truly have won teh internets...
2005-12-19 10:38:55 AM  
Now if I could send them back in time, that would be tits.

Yo, the experiment worked, i'm back in 2005. Me and Titor are hitting the message boards screwing with the past. It's wierd to be able to hit all the women I want and not worry about DTI infecting you, oh yeah tell the boss it's the 12 monkeys.
2005-12-19 10:43:35 AM  
If we still use email in its current for 30 years from now, I owe you all a Coke.
2005-12-19 10:44:42 AM  
Stop it!
2005-12-19 10:45:55 AM  
this is, of course, assuming that we have the same email address in 30 years.

And..y'know, we're not hooked up to some sorta neural network and living our lives inside a virtual reality set up by our future robot overlords.

just saying.

I think the submitter used this service a few months ago to send himself an e-mail reminding him to submit this to fark.
2005-12-19 10:53:00 AM  
Hopefully, in 30 yrs I won't have the .navy or .mil on my email address. Buzzy.

/will never make Admiral, hell, probably won't make Captain even if I do 30 years.

Dear FutureMe,

I really hope you're not dead.

If you send an email to yourself at all, you're sending it to a future-self. Sofa King We Todd Did.

that sarah conner link was far too weak.
2005-12-19 10:59:56 AM  
I'm gonna start a pay service that promises to send email to yourself in the past...once the time-traveling technology to do this is invented...I'll just store the email until that happens.
2005-12-19 11:00:16 AM  
Big deal.

Let me send an E-mail to myself 10 years ago, however...I'd pay a lot of money for that.

"Don't marry her. Wait...scratch that. Just don't marry!"
2005-12-19 11:01:42 AM  
Whoa. I originally read the first sentence of the headline as "Email yourself up 30 flights of stairs". I seriously need coffee.
2005-12-19 11:02:19 AM  
Didn't we do this already a month ago?

Yeah, and about a month before that and a month before that. Seems to be a monthly repeat. People thinking they have found something "cool".
2005-12-19 11:04:16 AM  
Dear FutureMe,

If time travel is possible when you recieve this, let me borrow $300 so I can buy our current girlfriend a diamond necklace for christmas instead of this damn Luther Vandross concert DVD.

You know I'm good for it.

Sincerely you,

At precisely 11;16AM EST you will post yet another meaningless post to a thread on future emails. Don't do it.

i'm not a big fan of "Today's ________ brought to you by..."

not really a cliche, but just a busted intro...still don't like it (just a poor excuse for lack of imagination)

Are you sure they didn't mean "30 days" instead of "30 years" and "link greenlight" instead of "e-mail"?
2005-12-19 11:23:42 AM  
Oh, ok, thanks! Wow, this future posting stuff really works!
2005-12-19 11:26:18 AM  
barkingpumpkin, I went back to that thread, but almost all mention of luckycharms is gone. Wha' happen?

Just sent an email to myself 30 years in the past

Dear Pastrp:

You will be born in 2 years. Good luck with that.

2005-12-19 11:28:34 AM  
Oh please, people change e-mail adresses all the time. I currently have 4 e-mail adresses, and I doubt that any of them will be functional even within two years.

[image from perso.wanadoo.fr too old to be available]

Can we send email to the past also?
2005-12-19 11:30:08 AM  

they probably just add them to a mysql database and have a cron job set up that runs daily, queries, loops through, and sends any e-mails with the current date.
