Put TickleTrain to work with Mozilla’s Thunderbird


Businesses choose Thunderbird because it works in most operating systems including Macintosh, Linux and Windows… and so does TickleTrain. Use Thunderbirds BCC field to insert a special email address and you are ready to track and follow-up (if needed) on that email. Using the auto-complete feature makes TickleTrain very fast and you never need to leave your compose screen to activate it. Stay on top of your outbox with ease.

How does it work?

how_tickle_trainLet’s explore how TickleTrain is used with Thunderbird to follow-up on emails. After signing up for an account at Tickletrain.com, you’ll be provided with several pre-loaded Tickles that can be used on any email you choose. When composing or replying to an email in Thunderbird, just type its assigned email address in the BCC field before sending. One of those preloaded Tickles is called “universal.” TickleTrain uses a format like this for the BCC field of your email: universal+yourname@tickletrain.com. The “universal” Tickle tags emails for follow up in three days if you don’t get a reply. You’ll receive an email notification (called “Today’s Tickles”) where you can preview the follow up email TickleTrain composed for you and send it with a single click. Nothing gets sent without your approval.

Customize your Tickles with whatever wording you want and use them over and over again for different contacts and subjects. Creating your own unique Tickles for different subjects is easy. Login to the TickleTrain website using Mozilla’s Firefox, Windows Explorer, Apple’s Safari, Google’s Chrome browser, or your favorite web browser, and click Add Tickle. You will then be guided through setting up a Tickle. When you’re done, click Save and you’ll be provided with a new unique email address to use in the BCC field. You can have an unlimited number of Tickles each customized for the subject matter at hand. Use them whenever the email subject matches. Common examples might be:

universal+yourname@tickletrain.com – follows up on anything

invoice+yourname@tickletrain.com – encourages payment for unpaid invoices

quote+yourname@tickletrain.com – follows-up on the quote or estimate you sent

14+universal+yourname@tickletrain.com – follows up in two weeks for you

The concept is something to get used to. But once you do, you’ll see how much more you can get done through Thunderbird. Plus, you might be surprised how following up builds better relationships. Your contacts instantly feel important by your personal attention to them – especially when no one else did! That’s why we call TickleTrain – “a money maker”. “It boosts productivity and increases sales. See how it can help your business. Sign-up for free.”
