Problem: You send an email to someone regarding progress of work or any other important subject. He gets the email, reads it and forgets to follow up. And since you deal with a huge number of emails everyday, you also forget about that email. And finally, one day you realize that the guy hasn’t followed up on the work assigned and you are losing money.
So how do you ensure that neither you nor the recipients of your emails forget to follow up ?

Now, there is no dearth of online reminder tools. However, the best tool that could take care of the above problem should be the one that can work seamlessly with email. And FollowUpThen is just that.
It is an email reminder service which sends email follow up reminders to you as well as your email recipients. It works like this – just cc a mail to email@example.com and if you don’t get a reply from the recipient in 2 days, both of you would be sent a reminder.
Similarly you can send a cc to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
There are three ways to use FollowUpThen:
1) Cc to the service firstname.lastname@example.org: If the recipient of your mail doesn’t reply (“reply all” to include FollowupThen too) to your mail then both you and your recipient will get a follow-up reminder.
2) Bcc to the service: If you send a mail to someone along with Bcc to FollowupThen then only you would get a reminder from this service.
3) Send a self follow-up mail to this service to remind yourself about a task after a specified time interval.
Here is a video to give you more information about this service:

CC or BCC to just email@example.com, where time-interval could be in mins, hours, days or years and you will get a reminder within that time interval.
Simple interface, easy to use.
It automatically deletes your email content from its database once the follow up mail has been sent.
