Thanks for the mention, and in some great company I might add! Email is a difficult thing to handle, and this list is a great place to start. Great job, and thanks again.
Email is a great invention but volumes of incoming emails seem to be infinite. One of the first point is to start reducing the number of incoming emails before starting optimizing other things. Did you know that for every 5 emails you send you get about 3 in return? So if you send less, you receive less. Now go through your outbox and think twice if each email and all people on the distribution list where really necessary…

One of the best books I have read on computer productivity was “Bit Literacy” by Mark Hurst. He covers the entire spectrum of computer productivity killers, with an emphasis on information overload. The first issue he attacks is handling email, with some very straightforward and easy-to-follow suggestions.
I highly recommend this book ( and I’ll bet it is already mentioned somewhere on your blog, sorry Mark if that’s the case! )

Thanks for mentioning the book. I haven’t read it, but I have heard of it. Sound like a very interesting read.
