The site says, 'Send your future self some words of inspiration. Or maybe give 'em swift kick in the pants. Or just share some thoughts on where you'll or what you'll be up to in a year, three years...more? And then we'll do some time travel magic and deliver the letter to you.'

The site recommends using a personal Gmail address or other webmail address, rather than a work one - as your future self might have changed from the current job.

But the users have the option of going back into their email 'to the future' and alter it to ensure delivery.

The site allows you to send emails privately and anonymously, but publishes 'public but anonymous' excerpts of mails sent to various future selves.any are pre-congratulations sent by struggling students.

'Congratulations on graduating and hopefully mastering Chinese by now! Go out into the work force and be a force to be reckoned with! Remember how you felt as a lowly first year and how awesome it is to be done with college and never have to go through this all ever again. Enjoy yourself, but stay safe. Peace out,' one said.

Many writers seem to be hoping to surprise their future selves with their emails.

'Yeah, remember this? Nope. Course not. That's because you wrote it three months ago from your dorm room. Hope you and Evan are still together,' another said.

However, emails to the future are forbidden from naming other people - for legal reasons - and one can also send advice to others via the site - although these come with serious restrictions.

'You can send letters to others, but only if you are a registered user. When they get the e-mail, it will specify that it was sent from your e-mail address. This policy is a bit strict perhaps, but unfortunately there are Internet hooligans out there that would abuse FutureMe otherwise,' the site added.
