E-mail management

  1. Try to have an inbox empty at the end of the day – makes you feel better
  2. Spam – delete
  3. Important e-mail – read and decide:
    • Delete
    • Delegate/forward
    • Immediate action (short action to be done in less than 2 minutes)
    • Leave for later (to be done today: mark e-mail with the star or set the event in calendar to deal with the theme of the email)
  4. Consider folders in your mailbox
  5. Additional:
    • Prepare signature
    • When you are on holidays/sick leave – make an automatic responder
