There is a reason that email management training is always in demand. Email is and continues to be one of the most hated "necessary evils" of our time.
Everyone complains about email. We get too much of it. People don't use it properly. We get spam. It interrupts our day. It just keeps piling up. And on and on.
Luckily, there are solutions. One such solution is the popular "Inbox Zero" methodology introduced by Merlin Mann. We've presented Inbox Zero a number of times at SpinWeb, as well and most people absolutely fall in love with it. Inbox Zero helps you stay organized, helps you know what to do with every message and keep your inbox from looking like a 100-year-old landfill.
I've used Inbox Zero for many years and I truly love it. It's a great system and I still recommend it today. However, I have finally found a tool that truly takes email management to the next level for me. It's a beautiful app that automates much of the stuff I was doing with Inbox Zero, it helps me focus better on what's important and it lowers my stress level.
This tool is called SaneBox.
