How to Organize Your Email Like A Pro

shutterstock_184196546Need help organizing your email? Many people store all of their messages in their inboxes, but this can be unwieldy. By creating folders and using rules to divide your messages between those folders, you can quickly organize even the most chaotic inbox.

Another way to keep email from getting out of control is to pick specific times of day to check it. Rather than responding to every notification, you could choose to check email only first thing in the morning, at lunch, and before the end of the day. Remember the one-minute rule: If it takes less than a minute, just go ahead and answer the email instead of letting it sit for another day.

Here are some tips for Gmail, Outlook, and Apple Mail which will help you set up folders, create rules to filter your messages, and more.
