Creating a controllable inbox

Many people decry how awful email is. They feel that messages keep on appearing in their inbox as if they have no control over them.
The first step to a controllable inbox is to slow down the messages.

  • Unsubscribe to all the blogs and newsletters you subscribed to or set up a separate email account for it.
  • Be selective on marketing.
  • Kill all non-essential email notifications.
  • Be a ruthless unsubscriber.
