608 General Emails and 83 WA Ones? How Far Can I Get Today?

Last Update: February 16, 2021

When I look at my husband's laptop, he usually has 8 or 10 emails to deal with. That sounds very nice, but somehow I got up to those numbers in the title. Today it's snowing again and I'm not going anywhere, so my project is to go through those things and get rid of as many as I can.

I will answer some, take myself off a lot of lists, and delete old ones I don't need.

UPDATE i GOT THE GENERAL ONES DOWN TO ABOUT 150, ONLY DID A FEW WA ONES, BEFORE MY BRAIN TOTALLY FRIED.

How numerous are your emails?

Happy Tuesday to you. Since the winter storm here has shut the highway down and by usual job is closed today, I get the time to clean out my email box. I usually do this throughout the week anyway because I’ll get 200 or more emails per day. It’s a slow week, so I’ve answered or deleted 129 today. But the day is still young. Good fortune to you, Rosana.

Hi Rosana
For me something between 80 and 200 per day. It used to be more. I've been unsubscribing a lot recently.

However, every now and again FOMO kicks in and I subscribe to a few more,

I am pretty ruthless in going through them though. I delete many that don't add value today in the knowledge that they'll turn up again soon.

Hi Rosana, personally I'm not one for checking many emails.

I have a quick scan a couple of times a day, if they look interesting I'll open them, if not I ignore them!

Not sure if this is the right approach to take but I currently have over 27,000 unread in my inbox!

Sounds like a plan.
I periodically go through my junk folder and unsubscribe from as many as time allows, though I get the time back triple-fold over the next few days.
If I leave them alone for a day there will be approximately 100 in the inbox and 150 in the 'junk folder by the evening.
Too many useful ones end up in the junk folder for me to ignore and just delete.

Not much
I use a filter system to put emails in boxes after reading them
