No matter how hard we try, at some point we all end up using our email inbox as a to do list. Of course, the folly in this system is that our “list” keeps getting longer and longer every day, making it harder to manage.
Enter the Mailbox App. A new mail management app from Dropbox that allows you to manage your email from your phone or tablet.
Mailbox works by linking your gmail accounts (up to 10), icloud, and google apps. To manage your inbox you will swipe to label, snooze, archive or delete.
By setting up messages to “snooze” you are able to get them out of your inbox and have them come back to you at a time or date that you are better able to manage them.
With a bit of ongoing dedication, this quick organization method allows you to get zero inbox (and stay there!) by allowing you to quickly label messages or bring them back later.
While I wouldn’t personally use mailbox as a day to day option for responding to all of my emails (regular gmail is too rich with tools to not use), it is great for it’s primary function – getting you on top of your overwhelming inbox.
So give it a try and see if you can achieve everyone’s dream goal: zero inbox!
