March 27th, 2010, 09:10 PM #1Time For An Email Clearout!
Earlier this year I had a splurge on my email list and got rid of a lot of tiresome and time-consuming stuff.
Trouble is it's crept back again - and of course, it's my own doing.
So bad that I have three main email addys and some people email the same stuff to all three -
I'm guessing that most people get in this state from time to time - so here's the question - who do you HAVE to keep on your list and why? No blatant advertising tho please - just honest answers!

step one - pick one email address to sign up for stuff with (cuts out 2/3 of your mail right there!).
you don't have to keep any of it . But you're gonna feel you have to. I have a folder for stuff that i use for ideas or to monitor (for lack of a better word) that I have autofiltered to it's own folder in outlook, that I don't look at all the time but have in case i need a moment of inspiration.

I use auto filter a lot. It cuts down on what is in the inbox. The folder is bold when there is a new mail so I am aware of it and if I have time then I look at it.
I have one addy for personal and one addy for business.

gmail is one of the few things that I like about Google. I have a few accounts to help filter junk mail.

I moved my vanity email address to Gmail over a year ago when I crashed a hard drive. I am running Google Apps which is a bit more limited. One thing that has greatly lessened is spam getting to my inbox. Their create an event sucks and would be cool if they had drag and drop.
I have someone who emails me to my personal, Yahoo and Hotmail accounts. Marked their email address as spam for Yahoo and Hotmail.

I've tried to get the auto filter to work on my gmail account but didn't have the patience to set it up properly...once I've unsubscribed to a lot of the stuff, I'll have another bash at it.

I switched to Gmail 3 years ago for all of my email when I had a hard drive crash. It was a "temporary" move, but I never looked back. Spam filtering is extraordinary, and I love the conversation view, labeling, filtering, search and other features.
