Taming My Email Overload - Early Steps Are Paying Off
Earlier in March I vowed to take small steps to tame my email overload. I’m pleased to report it’s going well.
I’ve unsubscribed to most of my RSS and email feeds. I notice some don’t have an unsubscribe option, so these are proving more tricky.
I’ve also unsubscribed to all my Google Alerts. This takes care of about 60 emails per day.
I’ve deleted all my empty, duplicate and obsolete email folders. Why I had them in the first place, I’m not sure.
Taming my email overload will be a big job, but I’m committed to it. I’ll report back as I go along.
My main ongoing issues are too many stored emails (just in case I need them), and the ever present spam. I’ll set up rules for the latter and see what I can do about tightening this.
How about you? Any tips for taming email overload? How do you handle emails you want to keep?
