We ourselves use the word remember while others remind us.

Thanks for your information.

Good question.

Vertika said: (Aug 1, 2011)  
@Nandan... The given sentence in its original form is meaningless. If it would have been "you must remember to post this letter" it would have correct.

Very good answer.

Remember and remind both are different word and meaning.

Remember (noun) means recall.

And remind (verb) means prompt.

And in sentence it better to use remind instead of remember.

Sentence demand such a word that prove the meaning for it.

That's it.

Do you remember me. For human beings we use remember. For things or for work use remind.

It can also be," You must remember to post this letter."

Nothing is wrong in this sentence too, isn't it?

REMEMBER and REMIND are the verbs related to MEMORY.

REMEMBER - Is an INTERNAL process which is done by the person himself and nobody can help him to memorize if he wishes not to memorize anything happened. Only the person himself can read his own brain and let the things come out of his mind. It is totally personal.

{--EX:-I still remember that journey.}

REMIND - Is an EXTERNAL process. People can help other to memorize the things happened. When people/others make someone memorize about any incident/thing happened, there will be REMIND in action. It is exactly contrast to REMEMBER.

{--EX:-Please, remind me to go to temple on Saturday as I am absent minded.}

Is it wrong when we use, You SHOULD remember to post this letter. Can anyone can explain the different between should and must.

Jay said: (Aug 12, 2014)  
I think Should is used when things have to be done, something like a third person is informing you, but must is used when its an order need to be accomplished at any cost.

Ex: Should:You should watch news daily.

Must: You must attend classes on time.

You should remember me while posting this letter.

Chandramani said: (Jun 19, 2015)  
"You must remember to post this letter". Can this be another answer?

Teja said: (Jul 1, 2015)  
"You must remind me of posting this letter" even this correct right?

Santanu said: (Dec 2, 2017)  
This can be like this also.

You must remember me posting this letter.

Well in my opinion remember and a reminder both do have the same meaning, but it is performed by various form. Taking an example. " mom please remind me to take my phone" here the person is looking for the help of his mother to remind him to take his phone.

Now, let's look for an another example "i still remember your birthday". Here the person itself is using his memory power to remember a birth date of his friend.

So from here we can understand that remember and reminder both have the same meaning but it is performed by various means.

Hope this helped you guys.

Thank you.

"You must remember me while posting this letter" is also a possibility.

Sudhanshu said: (Jun 22, 2019)  
Why can't we write you must remember to post this letter?
