Tips to Manage Incoming E-mail
Friends, colleagues, and clients are all telling me that one of their biggest challenges is trying to manage e-mail overload. They say everyone wants something from them and consequently, they're buried in e-mail. Is this a struggle for you? If so, here are a few tips that will save you some time in reading and receiving e-mail.
1. Limit personal e-mail at work.
Yes, this may seem a drastic step but it's one that will help you stay focused on priorities so you can complete your work and then spend time doing the things that mean the most to you.
2. Use a spam program.
Your employer or ISP may already cover this but if you are running your own system you'll want a spam blocker to help minimize unwanted e-mail as much as possible. (Tip: PC World rates Cloudmark's SpamNet as one of the best.)
3. Use folders to store e-mail.
Your inbox isn't a storage facility, it's for incoming mail. Create folders within your e-mail program that "mirror" the folders you use to store hardcopy in your office/workspace.
4. Change the subject of e-mails to summarize its content.
Make it easy to find any e-mail you decide to keep by changing the subject. For example: if you receive an e-mail with the subject "Update" and it turns out to be a request for you to send someone an update, change the subject to "Send John Doe product update on 8/29/05." This functionality is available in most e-mail programs.
5. Limit the frequency with which you review and process incoming e-mail to 2 or 3x's per day.
Pick times other than when you are most focused, creative, or energized.
6. As a general rule, separate the task of "processing" your incoming e-mail from "working" on your e-mail.
Exception: If you can reply or forward an e-mail in a minute or two, do it, then delete it. Otherwise, save the doing/replying/composing for a later work period.
7. Organize your e-mail by "Received" order.
In other words, make sure you've set up your inbox so the newest e-mails are on top.
8. Empty your e-mail inbox in five steps. Here's how:
