We all get too much email cluttering our inbox. Some of it we’ve brought upon ourselves when we signed up for some subscription, interesting blog, or joined that forum. However, most of it we never saw coming. Those email newsletters, deals, and marketing spam comes pouring into our inboxes just because we purchased a sweater or concert ticket online. Or worse, your email address was sold to a company and added to some spammy email list.
Every day you receive tons and tons of emails in your inbox, and you have to go over all of them, just to be 100 percent sure that you didn’t miss anything important.
