Boomerang acts like a snooze button for an email message. It lets you clean up your Inbox without losing track of important messages and helps you manage messages that you can't deal with today, but that need attention or a response later.
For Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013
This does not work with Outlook 2016.

Boomerang works like a snooze button for your email. If you get a message that needs your attention at a later time, just select the message, and choose a time from the dropdown. Boomerang will move the message to a storage folder (named Boomerang), and will bring it back to your Inbox at the time you requested. That way, the message gets your attention when you need it. Boomerang can even return the message flagged for follow up and marked unread.
If the email text contains a date and time, like Tuesday at 3 or tomorrow afternoon, Boomerang will automatically detect that time and suggest returning the message then, a day before, or a few hours before.
Boomerang works much better than creating a calendar event out of a message. It doesn't clutter your calendar with email messages that aren't really appointments. And you can't accidentally close the reminder.
A fan of GTD or other productivity methods? Boomerang will help you achieve Inbox Zero without needing any external system besides Outlook. You can go home every evening without having to worry about piles of email.
Boomerang has been extensively tested to make sure it won't slow down Outlook. It doesn't rearrange your messages or change Outlook from how you set it up.
Every action you take with Boomerang happens entirely on your computer. Your messages never leave your computer, and nothing about your email goes anywhere on the internet. Boomerang is safe, secure, and compatible with your network policies, no matter how stringent.
