Email Management - Quick Tips


Keep your inbox as empty as possible

  • Move important messages to proper sub-folders or delete unwanted right away.
  • Delete e-mails that are no longer required (outdated meeting notices, newsletters of no real value)
  • Keep inbox free of clutter and make easier to sport important messages.

Stop unnecessary emails

Eliminate sources of unnecessary e-mails
  • Unsubscribe Non-Work related (Jokes, Promo emails) or make it weekly/monthly update for needed one.
  • Mark as Spam as soon as you find it. (unknown senders, &%9SD@* subjects etc) DO NOT try your luck
  • Apply rules for unwanted emails.

Organize Emails

  • Consider inbox/draft/sent items as temporary storage for emails.
  • Create Folders/Labels wisely and use proper names for folders (Based on subject/Actions).
  • Move items from Sent Items to appropriate folders.
  • Got an email thread with 10+ continuous conversations ? Keep the latest one only
  • Use proper filters (based on sender, subject, Special words) and make email organized automatically.

Searching Emails

Search with words/sender/dates
