Rather than keeping all your email in your Inbox, create folders to hold mail items you want to retain—messages for a project, a customer, or a vendor. Begin by selecting the folder you want to create the new folder in, and then create the new folder as a subfolder of the selected folder.
- [Instructor] If I had kept all of the physical mail…that I've received in my lifetime, I would be inundated…because of the amount of physical mail that I have received.…They make TV movies about people who keep all their mail,…but most of us are not naturally hoarders.…We tend to read a piece of mail…and then do something with it, throw it away, recycle it.…Some of the mail I get, I don't even read.…I look at the envelope, and I know that I'm not interested.…Or I know that I already…have the information that will be inside.…We only tend to keep a small percentage…of the physical mail that we receive.…
Love letters, wonderful birthday wishes, legal documents,…things that we put on a bulletin board.…I encourage you to treat your Outlook Inbox…in exactly the same way,…to look at the emails you receive and to be willing…to say I'm done with this, I don't need it anymore,…or I'm done with this, and I need to save it.…But just because I want to save a piece of email…doesn't mean that I want to keep it in my Inbox…
