Email Reminder component

If you are often out of the office, you will appreciate the usability of the Email Reminder. With the help of this Microsoft Outlook addin you can receive all reminders, appointed tasks and calendar events that are saved in your Microsoft Outlook folders by email. And if you use a gate between email and, e.g., Short Message Service (SMS), you can be informed about all your events by receiving them on your mobile phone! With the help of Email Reminder addin you are not going to ever miss important meetings or forget to congratulate your friends on some holiday because you were in a business trip for several days!

The Email Reminder allows you to:

  • be well informed about all your events, regardless of your location;
  • receive reminders by emails, and, if any additional gates are used – get SMS with the reminders on your mobile phone or pager;
  • easily configure the reminder’s templates that you will receive.

Now you should select the folders, from which the reminders will be automatically forwarded, and also the email address, to which these messages will be sent. Many mobile operators have a gateway that connects e-mail and SMS. For example, if you send a message to the address like, where xxxxxxxx is a telephone number, the telephone subscriber will receive SMS message with the text of the letter that has come to this address. Select the necessary address in “Recipients”:

Set additional configurations the following way:

  • Send the message for 30 minutes before the event is occurred – the reminder will be sent in 30 minutes prior to the event;
  • Force/Send Receive for Outlook messages – the reminder will be sent immediately regardless of the Microsoft Outlook settings.
  • Don’t show the reminder dialog (Dismiss reminder) – the reminder window will not appear at the primary computer.

    Have been using MAPILab Toolbox programmes for a couple of years now and have found the programmes of excellent quality and resource. Did have a short period with a problem with "templates" but the service from over the pond was excellent and the problem was solved.
