Read Email Later is a service that lets you read your e-mail newsletters on Pocket and your Kobo e-reader. It is created by Frank van Rest to let him read the great (and quite long) e-mails by Stratechery on his Kobo e-reader.
When you connect your Pocket account to Read Email Later we will provide you with a special e-mail address. The content of all e-mails that are sent to this address will be added to your Pocket List. That's it!
To pay for servers and my time for maintenance and support, I ask for a small subscription fee of € 2 per month or € 10 per year (ex. VAT). I don't like advertising and I don't want your data. I use Stripe to process these subscriptions and don't store any personal information myself. You can start a free trial of 30 days and will receive an e-mail to reconsider before the paid subscription will start.
This provides us with your Pocket username and the possibility to add items to your Pocket List.
When you send an e-mail to your special e-mail address, we create an HTML file in a secret (non-guessable) location with the contents of the e-mail. We then add that secret location to your Pocket List.
Yes, it does! By adding +tag.here_your_tag in front of @reademaillater.com in your special e-mail address the article will be added to Pocket with the here_your_tag tag. For example, email@example.com will add the tag alphabet to the article.
There is one other trick that you could try. By default, the title of the article in Pocket will be of the format "Sender: Subject". Sometimes the sender is not relevant (for example when you manually forward an email). In that case, you can use +nosender in front of @reademaillater.com in your special e-mail address. The title of the Pocket article will then be just the subject of the email. For example firstname.lastname@example.org.
That's a great question, I'm glad you asked! Out of the box, Pocket does not work with websites with paywalls like New York Times, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal. However, in combination with a service like Email This, Read Email Later can also add those articles to your Pocket account so that you can read them on your Kobo! Just use your Read Email Later e-mail address with their service.
If you have an active subscription, you can "Connect with Pocket" above to see your special e-mail address and to visit the Stripe customer portal to manage your payment method and subscription.
We support all kinds of newsletters. Free e-mail newsletters like Benedict Evans Newsletter, theSkimm, or Morning Brew, and paid-for e-mail newsletters like Stratechery, The Dispatch, or Letters from an American.
Yes, please send me an e-mail at email@example.com to hook you up.
