Triage Email with ClearContext (Yes, Scoble, we’re talking to you!)

As we’ve posted about before, it seems like everyone has problems keeping up with their email.  Robert Scoble is the latest blogger to write about this – and it’s not the first time he’s mentioned his issues with email overload:

"Trying to (and failing) catch up on email."
"I’ve got about 1,100 emails waiting."
"Yeah, I’m overloaded on email."

We know many of you share the frustration with email.  We’ve written about the importance of an email management strategy, which is clearly the right long term solution.  But how do you get started? 

Let ClearContext perform triage on your inbox so that you can get it under control. 

Ed Bott did it:

"…yesterday, my inbox was overflowing with 4500 messages. Today, it contains 29 messages…"

Omar Shahine did it:

"… When I returned to work … I was greeted with > 300 unread messages in my inbox. …ClearContext allowed me to work through my messages from most important to least important. …I’m down to 28 items right now."

You can do it.

From our January post Holiday Email Avalanche, here are the three most popular ClearContext features people take advantage of to rapidly clear out a backlog of messages:

  1. ClearContext’s core message prioritization functionality automatically identifies your most important email and places it right at the top of the inbox. This lets you quickly deal with all of your personal and important correspondence and then rapidly file all the remaining stuff like bulk email that has been moved to the bottom of your inbox.
  2. ClearContext groups all emails in a conversation together in the inbox. This lets you quickly look at the most recent message in the thread and file/delete the entire set of messages.
  3. Inbox Manager AutoAssign rules file incoming newsletters, mailing lists, etc. into separate folders for future viewing. Create these rules and use the "Apply rule to existing Inbox messages now" checkbox to file messages that you have already received.
