On my smartphone, I click the microphone icon next to the space bar, and I dictate my Emails as well as my texts.
Read this comment I recently received:
I turn off the emails for all but a couple of my blogs and just access them through my reader because the full post is never in the email anyway. That way my inbox is less cluttered…
Clearly, a cluttered Email box is a problem. It is for this reader, it certainly is for me, and I’m sure it is for many bloggers.
- Make a new folder
This is a screenshot of options inside of Gmail.com. By clicking “Create New Label,” you can make folders. Other Email providers may have their own system for making folders.
- Simply drag and drop your Emails into the folders, and they are instantly organized for later reading. The beauty of this is it unclutters your Email box, so you don’t confuse the new with the old. You can always go back to Emails you’ve categorized by reviewing your folders.
- Decide your preferences. For example, as you can see in the screenshot, one option is to save your Emails but mark them all as read. Perhaps reading the subject line is enough that you may choose this option.
There are many additional options with Emails. For example, you can sort by user, date, and subjects.
Sanebox: Although I have not used Sanebox, reviewers say it will restore sanity to your inbox. For a small fee of $6.00, the app will declutter your inbox for you. It saves you time by organizing your inbox.
