Mailing List Help – Too Much Email
Be careful about subscribing to too many mailing lists. If you are getting too much email from mailing lists, there are three things you can do:
- Unsubscribe. Unsubscribe from lists you don’t read. Information overload is counter-productive, because you don’t have the time to read and obtain the benefits of the useful information you get. You can always read the archives, and subscribe to a list again later when you have more time.
- Digest. Set your settings to digest mode, so that you only get one email a day from each list.
- Filter. Set up mailing list filters to automaticallyfilter your mailing list email into individual folders, where they won’t take up space in your regular Inbox, and can be opened and read later at your leisure.
