Why have I let my emails get into a mess. I used to put them in folders , folksy,paypal,purchases etc but I havent been doing them and its so untidy.
What do you do ? I feel like deleting the whole lot!

I know how you feel-my laptop went capput the other week and I sent it to o/h’s work for his mate to mend it, he said there was such a lot on it, I couldn’t work out what he meant as it’s not my main computer, then I realised I had 4,000 unread emails! They seem to creep up on you :smile:

I have to keep my emails organised, I delete everything I’ve dealt with as soon as it’s done or file it in an appropriate folder. I simply have a very organised nature, it’s the kind of work I do! :smile:

I keep all business correspondence that includes emails for folksy and paypal you need them for tax reasons. A good paper trail makes it easier to file your taxes and you have a record should you ever need to refer to things at a later date.

I keep more than one email address so my business email address has everything in it in the date it was received/sent so easy to find what I require.

Person emails go to another account and are read and permentally deleted once they are no longer required.

I sort mine every day otherwise I’d be swamped. I delete on average 50 emails every night from just one email account. I get so fed up with all the facebook notication, pinterst notication and twitter emails.

I even have another account for all the emails I receive in relationship to the two forums I’m admin on.

Eileen, I think you could set your Facebook and twitter and possibly pinterest notification preferences so you don’t get so many. I’ve reduced my notifications to the bare minimum so I don’t have the task of deleting them
