When is it Time to Clean Up Your Inbox?

    How do you know it’s time for an inbox cleanup? Well, if you see the number of emails you have unread and it’s daunting – it’s probably time for a good cleanup. Here’s when you should be cleaning up your inbox, along with how you can do it with Mailstrom and Chuck.

    When to Clean Up Your Inbox
    To reiterate, if the number of emails sitting in your inbox is stressing you out, it’s time for a good cleanup! Here are other times you’ll need to clean up your inbox.

    1. If you find yourself unable to separate important emails from the junk: Do you find yourself missing important emails because you’re subscribed to too many mailing lists? Then it’s probably time to clean up your inbox and unsubscribe from those lists you don’t really need anymore! You can either do this manually through your email provider, or with the help of Mailstrom and Chuck, which we’ll share more about below.
    2. Most of your emails go unread: If that number in your inbox is high, it might mean that you’re leaving lots of emails unread because they’re just not relevant to you or of high importance. It’s time to clean those up!
    3. You haven’t done it in a while: Just like cleaning your house, it’s important to stay on top of cleaning your inbox! If you haven’t cleaned your inbox in a while, it may be time to do so.

    Cleaning up your inbox manually through your email provider directly is one approach. However, wouldn’t you want to take the more efficient path if it were available to you? Below are some details on Mailstrom and Chuck, services you won’t want to miss out on the next time you’re looking to clean up your inbox.
