So many emails! Set some rules!

EmailsDo you deal with all your emails in your “inbox” immediately & decide which one’s to keep & delete the rest?

How many have you decided to keep in the past month? Keeping them all in your inbox probably makes them difficult to manage.

If you have a great number of emails that you need to keep, have you considered archiving them or create “backup” email folders?

It makes sense to do this and then each day move selected emails into those folders.

 

It’s also worth setting up email rules.

This way you can have specially created folders for emails from particular individuals and/or companies and you can have them filtered directly into their own folder.  This way you will know straight away if there is an email from certain people/companies & you can prioritise which you read first.  Likewise, you can set a rule to delete particular emails immediately they are received.  Check out your email client’s tools and see if this is a possibility.  It’s a great timesaver & a good way to prioritise.
