Create Outlook-like reminders for Mail
Authored by: jfw on Sep 17, '12 07:30:48AM

This hint is helpful if you really want your email reminders to be time based. I know that was the reason for the hint but I rarely have the need to be reminded to follow up at a specific time.

In general, I find it faster & easier to use flags. I customized a "Follow Up" flag and assign that with a single click to any email (received or outgoing). Then I have a smart mailbox to show me all of them, which I can monitor at regular intervals (like daily) rather than being interrupted with a reminder when I'm doing something else.

I also like having all my messages I need to follow up to marked right in front of me in Mail.
