Digi Know: Creating e-mail rules for your sanity!

This simple little trick could save you from feeling completely bombarded by emails in your inbox in the New Year.

It is useful to set up a simple rule for email messages to be delivered straight to that labelled inbox rather than filling up the main inbox and filtering through all the emails to get to the important ones!

So for the important emails such as that from my line manager I would have her emails go straight into a Folder just for her and I focus on those first (of course!) when I get back after the break.
