Schedule automatic reminders with FollowUp CC so you will never forget an important email or task. Simply activate FollowUp.cc in your Mailbird App Store. It will then appear in the left menu panel.

Getting Started

Connect to FollowUp cc in Mailbird app store

  1. Click on the FollowUp.cc icon and sign in with your email or Gmail account.

FollowUp CC sign in from Mailbird

  1. After signing in you are all set up to schedule your first reminder. You will have a little calendar icon displayed on the bottom of every compose/reply/forward window. Click the icon to set the date when you want to get a reminder.

  1. FollowUp.cc will automatically appear in the BCC field of your message. The email address will differ, depending on the date you picked.

How does FollowUp.cc work

  1. After sending, you will receive a confirmation to your email address, listing the details of your reminder. You can easily disable them if you prefer not to get one.

Email confirmation of your reminder request

  1. The email reminder will appear as a regular email in your inbox, giving you different options on what action you would like to take next. Email reminders can be snoozed, rescheduled, or simply deleted or archived.

Note that aside from email reminders, you can also schedule the app to send a later follow-up email to a previous conversation.

Advanced FollowUp.cc Tips

From there you will be able to view and/or edit the reminder details, assign them to a task, or simply delete them.

Delete follow ups from your schedule

Other FollowUp features include:

  • Send later: you can schedule emails to be sent at a later time when you deem it appropriate to follow up.
  • Email tracking: you can activate a tracker on an email to count every time someone opens it.
  • Bookmarked pages: set email reminders for pages bookmarked via the app. 

Sounds neat. But have you started using it already? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

      Hey Daniel, thanks so much for reaching out. Since it is not a full integration, it would be best to contact FollowupCC about it. Unless you are only experiencing this issue in Mailbird. Then please feel free to reach out to our support @ getmailbird dot com 🙂 thanks so much

  • I was hoping to find an app that would trigger a reminder or send a follow up email only if there was “no reply”, like boomerang tries to do (poorly). Reminders are great, but I reply to so many emails that I don’t want to send a duplicate follow up. Hope this makes sense… Thanks in advance!
