We can email ourselves in a thread to capture an idea

  • I can leave notes for myself about an email thread by sending a reply to my own address in the same thread.
    • Send Later in Mail can be used as a Tickler File
  • I’ll see the email as part of the thread, but it will be kept private.
    • I can use it to forward ideas to my Things inbox, but still keep notes in the thread.
  • It can be a nice tool for keeping notes in the email thread about…
    • Code review comments.
    • Ideas about a project we’re discussing.
    • Capture an idea on the phone about a thread which can be seen later on the desktop when I’m processing emails.
      • It is a good idea to turn on threads in Apple Mail to see these notes in context.
