New beta feature: the LetterMeLater widget

If you have your own website or blog, now you can let your users email themselves and their friends interesting things about your site. Here is a sample:

So you, the website or blog owner, will fill in the email with a default message, create the widget and get the HTML code to be placed on your website. Then your users may personalize the message, and enter in their recipients, and receive helpful information at the opportune moment.

If you are signed in, you can create your own widgets here!

A note about default dates: you can use 2 kinds, absolute and relative. An absolute date, (for example March 1, 2008) will always point to the same date. But you can also use a relative date (for example now or 2 weeks) and that will always be relative to the moment that the user schedules the email.

How about an option where you can lock the To: address. I saw the widget, and thought to myself... Cool. I can use this to suggest to the gentle readers that they can recommend subject matter for the blog. Only thing was, I set it up, and then realized that they supply the to: e-mail address. I supply most of everything else. Not exactly what I was planning on using it for.

That is all cool. But not what I was thinking.

You can probably edit the HTML code to fix the To: in the form to your desired email address, and then hide the field from the user.

This is awesome. I would like to request a feature change... Can you add the possibility for the user to add their "from email"? They are the ones actually sending the email. It doesn't make sense for it to come from my address or from lettermelater.
