Juuso is out-of-town now and will come back maybe tomorrow (or so). This is a scheduled post.
Darn, it’s Xmas time and my mailbox is dangerously flooding. At the time of writing there’s over 60 unread messages in my inbox (which is bad since I try to keep it as close to zero as possible). The fact that I’m away almost a week probably makes the mailbox even more cluttered with emails.
Usually my basic strategy for dealing with email inbox is quite simple: mark read & delete posts in batches – read only the ones that seem reasonable to read (and reply right away instead of thinking that “I’ll deal with this next week”). Usually there’s still several emails that are waiting to get answered. This way I hope to have a “clean inbox”, thus I can rest assured that I’ve dealt with the important posts.
What’s your strategy on dealing with emails, and how you keep things effective?
