I'm in email hell. I currently have over 18,000 emails which is the result of years of subscriptions to companies, blogs, survey sites and more. Although, what's currently in my inbox only goes back to December 2011 it's still sad, overwhelming and unmanageable.
I've set myself a goal to UNSUBSCRIBE to at least 10 emails per day, not including my fellow blogger's feeds and newsletters or other companies I'm truly interested in. If it's a sale type newsletter, I've decided that if I have not purchased anything from the company since last year's Christmas holiday, they are being REMOVED from my life!! I will find them again if I need them.
The problem I'm running into as a blogger, is that even though I have a separate email for my site and (several) separate emails for personal, financial and more is that my inbox has become like the world's largest Twitter account. The emails come faster than I can read them.
I use Gmail, so I feel like part of my issue is that I can't sort by sender. I tried using multiple email clients to manage this, but it ended up getting so slow due to the number of emails I received daily. It might have been before I got a new computer in December, though.
Does anyone else have similar problems? How do you deal?
