I think we all have the same experience with email these days, tons of message we just can't get to, and mindnumbing amounts of flaff that are gtting in the way of our productivity.
Check out this post about Sanebox and a few other tips that might help you get more out of your day.
SaneBox weeds out unimportant emails after examining your inbox content and history, surfacing only the communications you need to care about. And you can train the tool by moving miscategorized emails to your inbox to make it even smarter. In addition, it provides features for setting notifications for when people don't reply to a message, unsubscribing from unwanted newsletters, and snoozing emails you want to deal with later.
