Email Management Tips From the Community

Earlier when I posted some email management tips, you replied with some great advice! Here are four more organizational and management tips submitted by GeekSugar readers.

Use Different Accounts
I have different accounts. I use one account to sign up for websites and things like that, and one account just for personal emails, and another account for work. By doing this, it eliminates the clutter in my inbox, usually caused by random spamming, and newsletters and announcements from the sites I sign up for.

Create Rules
I use and abuse the "rules" function when it comes to emails. I have tons of emails that will be sorted into organized folders, some emails automatically marked as read and sent to trash, and some emails highlighted as probably being important. It helps!

Deal With Email Right Away
If I can, at the end of each day, or each week, I delete the emails I don't need or that aren't work related. Personal and freelance work are two Gmail accounts that I always have open. That way if I get an email I see it immediately and deal with it or "star" it to deal with later.

Inbox as To Do List
I try to move emails to folders or delete as soon as I can so I can use my inbox as a to do list for work.
