I’ll be out of town for a little while later in the month and I need to be able to send DH a couple of reminders via email during that time. Since I do most of the household chores and there are a few that need doing while I am gone (like taking out the trash - I’m not even sure he knows when trash day is), I’d like to be able to set up a reminder that will go into his email box at the appropriate time. I won’t have Internet access while I am gone, so I have to set this up before I leave.
Both of us have a Yahoo account, and while it has a calendar function that allows me to send myself reminders, I can’t figure out how to get it to send any to him. I also have Mozilla Thunderbird as my other email application. There are about a grillion add-ons to that, and I cannot figure how which one will do what I want.
I use Memo to Me, my sister uses a reminder service based on e-cards. I had to open an account for the Absent Minded Professor; I gather my sister can send them to anybody. Memo to Me lets me set the date and time for a reminder, and allows multiple email reminders for the same event; I gather hers does not.
But there are a number of email reminder services out there. I didn’t really shop around as my needs are simple, lol.
It might be a bit more work than you’re looking for, but if you both join Hipcal, then you can set up and both join a group, and then you can make it so everyone in the group gets email, text message, IM, whatever reminders on certain dates and times.
Thanks! This is just what I need. I started up an account with Memo to Me and it’s all set to go.
bouv, thanks for the link. Hipcal looks like a pretty nice utility. I thought about doing the similar thing with YahooGroups - those groups contain a calendar function which will send out reminders to everyone in the group, but it seemed like a bit of overkill to have a group for just two people.
