Email overload – managing it during half term

Wednesday February 23rd, 2011, 9:00 am

Ways to reduce the volume of email awaiting your return after a break for half-term include:

  1. Prioriting what you really need in your inbox and using rules to divert the rest to folders to read later in the week.
  2. Sending the lot to the Deleted folder and then including a line in your Out of Office message to tell people to re-send it if its urgent.
  3. Using colour and views on your return if it’s too late to do 1 or 2.

More suggestions can be found in ‘Brilliant Email‘ which of course you could always buy in any good book store and read on your break!!
