Some of my clients, myself included, have far too many e-mails clogging their INBOX. It is distracting and time consuming to look at the same list of e-mails several times, and to delete e-mails that you are not interested in reading.

To reduce the flow of mail coming into your INBOX:

  1.     Open the e-mail, scroll down to the ‘unsubscribe’ link, and click ‘unsubscribe’. The sender will no longer send you e-mail.
  2.     Mark the e-mail as ‘junk’ or ‘spam’. This redirects future e-mail from this sender to your ‘junk’ or ‘spam’ folder.
  3.     Delete the e-mail from your INBOX. This will move the e-mail to your ‘recently deleted’ folder, but not instruct your e-mail service to stop delivering in the future.

I hope this helps you to slow down the flood of unwanted e-mails, and gives you some time back and control of your INBOX.
