Email has become the necessary evil of modern communication – damn if you use it, and damn if you don’t. Like most modern virtual workers, I am swamped by an unending stream of email, which pours like torrential monsoon in downtown Bombay.
With over 500 emails a day, I have used every tip and trick, including fancy email add-ons such as superlative Mail Tags and Mail Act On, but I still find going a bit rough. As an Apple Mail user, I have optimized the client with smart folders, but still it is hard to keep up with the steady stream of messages. Result – I spend precious weekend answering emails, and missing out on fun in the sun.
Maybe I am missing something, or perhaps using the wrong email client. How do you manage your email life, and what client do you use. Are there any special tips and tricks you can share with us?
