I sent an email that I want to follow up on. "Remind Me" is only available in the inbox, not in sent items. How can I have mail remind me to follow up?

Mail.app will remind you to follow up automatically (unless you opted out)!


Get reminded to follow up on emails with no response

If you send a message and don’t receive a response in 3 days, the sent email automatically resurfaces to the top of your inbox to help you remember to follow up.

  • To ignore a follow-up suggestion, swipe right on the message in the message list.
  • To turn this feature on or off, choose Mail > Settings, click General, then select or deselect the checkbox next to “Enable message follow up suggestions.”
  • I'm not sure this will work with auto-replies though (e.g. "case created" may be interpreted as "answered").
