E-mail overload? Three ways to tame your in box.
3. Empty your in box on every view
The average e-mail user gets 110 e-mails a day. If checked five times a day, that is 22 e-mails to empty out on each visit. This seems difficult to most people because they believe “emptying” their in box means they need to complete every e-mail task. However, emptying the in box really just requires that you’ve sorted each e-mail into a folder or deleted it. By using folders and the trashcan, you will be able to prioritize, organize, and streamline your e-mail tasks, and you won’t have an anxiety attack every morning when you see 10,298 e-mails waiting in your in box.
