Battling the inbox bulge through smart technology
MOST business owners struggle with a bulging inbox. If it's time to put your inbox on a diet, here are some of the best workouts we can recommend.
The Best Web-Apps for Gmail
1. Other Inbox
Other Inbox scans your mailbox for unimportant emails and automatically sorts them into relevant folders. For instance, news alerts from CNN would go into the News folder while emails from Amazon or iTunes will be labelled as Shopping.
This adds a little "unsubscribe" button to your Gmail Inbox allowing you to unsubscribe from mailing lists and unwanted newsletters with the click of a button.
When you are running out of space on Gmail, use this service to find the largest emails in your account and delete /download them to recover some space. FindBigMail connects to Gmail via IMAP and retrieves only the sizes and not the full content of the email messages.
If you get an email from an unfamiliar person, you don't have to use Google to know more about him or her as Rapportive will bring all that information right inside your Gmail inbox.
You are on a vacation but still have to check emails just because you don't want to miss any of the "urgent" messages from your important clients? With AwayFind, you can easily create alerts for important emails and get notified via phone calls or text messages without having to constantly check your mailbox.
With Boomerang for Gmail, you can compose an email now and schedule it to be sent at a later time.
How do you access your older emails when the main Gmail service is down and you don't have an offline backup? It is therefore recommended that you use a non-Gmail service to backup your Gmail messages and Hotmail perfectly fits the bill.
