Triage Your Email After the Holidays

I hope that everyone reading this weblog got the opportunity to take a break and recharge with family and friends over the holidays.  If you have just returned from vacation to find your Inbox is flooded, these tips on using AutoAssign, Automated Filing, and ClearContext Action Buttons can help you get your arms around the problem.

I’ll add one more piece of advice to the link above.  After you download all the messages you accrued during the holidays, take Outlook offline while you make your initial pass at triaging the Inbox.  Getting new email while you’re trying to tackle a backlog will only slow you down.

Welcome back and have a Happy New Year!
