Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing your inbox, part of Outlook 2013 Power Shortcuts.
…Think of your email the same way you think about email that you…receive from your postal service.…If you simply take every piece of email and keep it forever and…ever, you will soon be deluged with the amount of email that you have.…We don't do that.…We read a piece of mail and we throw it away.…Some, we throw away without even reading them because we look at the envelope and…we know we're not interested.…But we only keep for posterity a small number of things.…Most of the mail we get ends up in the trash.…
Once we're done with it, we're done.…And that small number of things might be things that we put in…a safety deposit box or a vault.…Or perhaps they are wonderful birthday wishes or thank you notes and…we hang them on a bulletin board.…But if we simply looked at that box that we get our mail in, our mailbox.…It would not be full of last year's mail and the year before and year before.…Let me encourage you to treat your inbox exactly the same way.…To look at emails and say, I'm done with this, I don't need it anymore.…
