I use Reminders on my Mac, especially to remind me to send an email to a friend, co-worker, or family member. What happens after that? I don’t know because Mail doesn’t have an RSVP system built in, so I don’t know what happened to my request, and the reminder gets checked off. RSVP tries to solve that.

RSVP is a clever utility which lets you setup Reminders for email messages in Mail, then trigger the Reminders when a reply is not received. That makes it perfect to track responses (or, lack of responses).
Once you’ve used RSVP a few times to setup and track reminders and responses you’ll wonder why Apple doesn’t build something similar into OS X’s Mail app.
Click the RSVP icon in the Mac’s Menubar to get started.
Track each reminder from within RSVP and use the simple controls to set a specific date and time for the reminder.
RSVP makes it easier to track responses from email messages sent to others for a specific project.
Specific rules can also be setup to track replies, including displaying the email address from the responder. Reminders are easily deactivated when complete. For RSVP reminders that have yet to receive a response or reply, RSVP gives you a pop up with simple options– deactivate, Snooze for awhile, or Reschedule.
I don’t know of another Mac app that works quite like RSVP and it’s remarkable the app costs merely a few dollars.
