Filtering email can save you a great amount of time and effort. Often you can filter over half of your incoming email.

Usually you will filter the email into folders, but you can also give it a status or color.

Some less important email to filter into folders:

  • Email where you are CC

  • Newsletters

  • Auto-created reports and notifications

Some more important emails you can filter to highlight, color them red, for instance.

  • Emails where you are the only recipient.

  • Emails with terms such as FYA, Action, Urgent or the likes in the subject.
