9 thoughts on “How to use E-mail Follow-Up to send reminders on unreplied messages in Outlook

  1. Hello John,
    Thank you for your interest in our software.
    Unfortunately, there is no such method. The only template is available in the program settings.

  2. What happens when I send several messages with different subjects to the same recipient? If I place reminders for all the messages, will they be deleted once the recipient replies to one of the massages? I do not want this to happen, as the message are for different topics. Is this possible?

    1. Hello Mar, thank you for your question.
      If you send several messages with different subject lines to the same recipient and select monitoring “by E-Mail” only in the E-Mail Follow-Up settings – yes – it will consider the reply is received for all your messages sent to that recipient after the first his reply. For this case, we added another separate criterion – “By E-mail and Subject”, you can select it in the list, and app will monitor recipient’s reply both by the e-mail address and by the subject line:

  3. Is there a reason my question was removed and not answered?

    How do I make sure the reminder is just for me and not for the recipient.

    “it can either remind you to get in touch with your respondent if there is no reply within a specified time frame, or send an automatic reminder message to him.”

    1. Hello Mark, thank you for your question.
      Sorry for the absence of your comment – we experienced and fixed an issue with the website recently.
      The add-in does not send reminder anywhere – it sends merely e-mail message.
      Outlook displays the notification for the sender only: E-Mail Follow-Up creates an appointment in Outlook Calendar once the message is sent (no message properties are changed in this process). And later sender’s Outlook reacts to that Calendar item with the reminder.
      If you wish to remind your message recipient as well – you can send a follow-up message, the add-in may offer you that action if you wish.

    1. Hello Kurt, thank you for your question.
      The Email Follow-Up add-in monitors message by E-mail (if you select exactly this criterion) without sensitivity to alphabetic case. Actually, all our software behavior this way with e-mail addresses, according to the international production standard (RFC 822 IS: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0822.txt) which we use as well.
      I can assume several causes of this issue in a particular case, e.g. if the criterion “Email and Subject” is selected. Or probably, the “display as” name of the email address differs from the one really saved in message properties. Btw, you can check and compare those senders in the properties of your different messages: please move the cursor to the sender, in the pop-up window, click on the down-pointing arrow shown here in my screenshot – and select “Outlook Properties”. Please compare user data on different tabs. If you can see no differences there except the alphabetic case – please contact us in our support area with these details (screenshots): registration is free and takes a minute:
