4 Methods For Email Management On A Phone - Deepstash

4 Methods For Email Management On A Phone

  1. When you are walking or driving, use apps like Talkler to read your email to you and be able to reply with voice messages or delete emails.
  2. Trying to read email while doing other things often leads to interruptions and rereads. Avoid that by quickly moving messages that require responses to a “tasks folder” and forwarding or deleting the rest. If you are out of time to do this, only try again when you do.
  3. Set up filters to automatically sort emails whenever possible.
  4. A signature that informs you’re answering from a phone makes typos and late answers more acceptable.

Adopt GTD Methodology in Email

think of every email you get as either something you need to take action on, track, or refer to later. 

Every time you open a conversation, decide right away what to do with it. Don’t postpone and come back to it. You touch it once and move on.
