E-Mail That Goes Around...

This cool tool helps you get your inbox in shape by letting you choose the best time to handle tasks.

November 1, 2012

Sick of flagging, starring, and marking messages as unread? Is your mailbox haunted by ancient, cryptic drafts that you forgot to send? Boomerang offers to take all the “important-but-don’t-bug-me-now”–level messages off your hands until you actually need them. Set a time to be reminded to act, and you can “boomerang” incoming mail, invitations, and messages you want to send later. You can also set outgoing mail to come back into your inbox if no one responds, prompting you to follow up.

Full version: $29.95 one time fee for Outlook users, Gmail users pay $14.99/month (or try it free for 30 days). Baydin; Mountain View, Calif.; www.baydin.com.
