… that was the subject line of an email I just received. From myself, from exactly 1 year ago! Last year exactly on the 18th of November I tested the tool by Forbes and Codefix, with which you could send emails to yourself in the futuer. I tried 1 year, 5 years, etc. up til, I think 20 years. I was doubting whether it would really work, but here is the answer for the 1 year email:

Greetings from your past. In the fall of 2005, you agreed to receive this message, which has been preserved for a year in the Forbes.com E-Mail Time Capsule. For more details, visit http://www.forbes.com/capsule

Here is the text of your message:

Hi Du selbst,

Dies ist ein Test. Vor einem habe ich eine email via Forbes und Yahoo! and mich selbst geschickt.


Now I am curious, if I will really get an email in 20 years, too. I will be 54 then and might not even remember this and delete the „spam“.
