Email is still the most popular method of communication - however - how can we manage it better? Here are some tips for handling your inbox:

  • Schedule two or three slots in the day for email.
  • Turn off every alert or notification.
  • Auto-file mail from regular recipients into folders.
  • Have a range of signatures for anything you write regularly.
  • Read an email once, action / respond and file it.
  • To get your mail read, have a very clear subject line.
  • One subject per email.
