I was anticipating a good joke by Google for today since it’s April Fools day and all, i mean things can only get better after they pull of the TiSP joke and sure enough this year’s prank is quite good.
Gmail Custom Time
How do I use it?
Just click “Set custom time” from the Compose view. Any email you send to the past appears in the proper chronological order in your recipient’s inbox. You can opt for it to show up read or unread by selecting the appropriate option.
Is there a limit to how far back I can send email?
Yes. You’ll only be able to send email back until April 1, 2004, the day we launched Gmail. If we were to let you send an email from Gmail before Gmail existed, well, that would be like hanging out with your parents before you were born — crazy talk.
Nice one Google!
