How to Spring-Clean Your Email Inbox and Be More Efficient

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2015-05-29

Like it or not, email is still the No. 1 killer app for business. By and large, enterprises would not be able to survive if not for email database providers, such as Microsoft (Outlook), Google (Gmail), Yahoo, Comcast, AT&T and many others. They wouldn't otherwise have a system of record for all their internal and external communications. Texting and messaging via social media are used more often, mainly because younger people coming into the workforce grew up with them and prefer them. But as a messaging app of record and security, texting doesn't hold a candle to email, thus email stands to remain No. 1 around the world for years to come. It might be clunky, difficult to get multiple people on the same page and slower to deal with than texting, but nonetheless, it's the king of the enterprise business conversation. Therefore, as long as we're going to be using email for a while, we might as well make it efficient. The following slide show, put together using eWEEK reporting and advice from Deb Lee, contributor for Neat, offers some practical spring-cleaning-type advice.
