Frequently Asked Questions
Memeoirs is the place to render your communications eternal. Use it gather and print your most relevant email exchanges with your loved ones.
Your Memeoirs is made by selectively publishing the e-mails from your contacts that fall into the time frame you choose. That said, newsletters, account activation e-mails, and all that non-personal mailing will be discarded for you. Also, we try our best to purge the body of the e-mails of redundant content.
You can further make your Memeoirs yours by choosing a style that fits you, creating a fitting cover and adding some context. Once you are satisfied with your book we will ship one or more copies to your doorstep. No matter where you live in the world.

Currently only GMail and Hotmail (now called Outlook.com) are fully supported. We are rapidly extending the service to other providers. Also, some allow you to import your messages into a GMail account, from where you can create your Memeoirs. Read on.
We ask you to choose one or more contacts and a time period. The messages printed will always match this choice. So you can print all the conversations you had with your partner in the year of 2010, say.
The messages are sorted chronologically with each chapter corresponding to a season of the year.
No, they are not. Our system is able to identify the relevant body of the message (vs. redundant content), and keep just that. In the process footer ads or recurrent lengthy signatures are also removed.
Both of these entries are optional, and in case you do choose to write some opening words for your Memeoirs they will show in the beginning of your book. Just like that, an introduction.
On the last step of your book making process, the Time and Preview step, a preview will be shown to you. Although it is low resolution, that preview already matches the final version of your book, the one that will be sent to print. In case you spot something missing, you can change your selection on any of the steps to make sure you end up with the book you idealized.
In case you are still not happy with the content on the preview, contact us. We will be more than happy to help you out.
The most likely explanation is that IMAP is disabled for your GMail account. To enable IMAP follow these instructions. If you have a Google Apps account you might need to ask your IT administrator to enable it for your company.
We print books ranging from 30 to 450 pages.
The number of emails you can fit in a book largely depends on the length of each email. You can easily try creating a book, and see if you have enough messages to reach 30 pages, and not too many to go beyond the 450 page limit.
Try limiting the number of emails that go into the book by shrinking the time period. Also, and because the two different interior layouts each produce books with different sizes, you could try changing that. The Contemporaries layout is more dense, thus using up less space, while the Classics will result in a more extended, bigger book.
Currently Memeoirs only prints text. In the future we might include images as well. Stay tuned.
