Not So Useful Uses

  • Email your boss an automated out sick message (while you're at the beach!)
  • Emailing yourself in the past. I haven't quite figured out how to build the flux capacitor yet to time travel. Maybe soon though!!!
  • Sending emails to addresses that don't exist..... or is it?
  • Sending yourself reminders for the wrong dates. If yo can't correctly remember your anniversary, then you're pretty much hosed.

Don't send an e-mail to your college e-mail account in 8 years unless you plan on having access to that account in 8 years. Chances are, you would have alredy graduated.... I hope ;)
