As we near the official start of Summer and Spring will quickly be behind us…we ask where did our Spring Cleaning go? Are we ready for the long days of Summer? Here at Mail2World, we believe in getting organized, including your inbox.
To that end (or start) we came up with some “smart” strategies to help you organize your inbox:
from groups and spam email
Unsubscribe from newsletters, shopping emails, coupons, and spam will help significantly reduce the unnecessary messages your inbox receives. Use the opt-out link provided on the email, but remember only click if you know they’re from reputable companies.
Social Networks and IM
In my opinion, social networks such as Facebook and Twitter handle quick response messaging much better than email does. Users can respond and block invites quickly, in comparison to opening and reading a message in their inbox.
Mail2World’s Sophisticated Filter Tools
Use our filtering feature that will allow you to filter messages directly into folders apart from the main inbox. Moving messages into separate folders will allow for easy filtering of messages based on subject, sender, personal or business. To learn more about filters read “Using Email Filters, Folders and other Tips.”

- Avoid Junk mail like the
This is an easy one. Don’t sign up for anything you are not really going to read. A very common practice is when you provide your email to enter or win a prize. Or when you “like” generic posts on Facebook. At the very least use a separate email address for junk mail. To help with this tip, please read our article on “How to Fight Spam.”
These are just a few tips to help reduce the amount of email you receive. If some of you have other suggestions or comments, please leave them below. Until next time, happy emailing everyone!
