How Do You Keep Up with the Email?

One of these days, when I have nothing else to do, I really need to clean out my email inbox.  The problem with having Yahoo! mail and its unlimited storage is that I don't delete nearly as much as I should.  Oh, I delete the emails offering to enlarge certain parts of my anatomy that I don't have, the ones telling me of the singles who want to meet me, and the ones listing the side effects of diet pills and what to do if I or a loved one has suffered any of these effects.  What I don't delete are the emails that sound kind of interesting, the ones offering free stuff or discounts on travel, or the ones containing health tips or recipes.

I save those for later, but then - I never get back to actually read them.  I might have a better chance if I organized them when they came in, putting them into their proper folders, and creating additional folders as needed.  But I don't, and then everything just gets lost in my inbox.  I'd probably be ahead to just delete everything and start over.  What do you think?

Is there any way to keep email organized and to keep up with it?  Without just taking days and days to wade through it.  Give me some tips.

  1. i have different folders in my email account and would move my important emails in each individual folder. the unimportant... i spam them.

  2. If you get any great ideas or tips, pass them along, because I do the EXACT same thing as you! This would be why my gmail currently says I have 784 unread e-mail. No, that is NOT an exaggeration... that's the exact number.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
