The BLUF - 5 days away from email - 280 emails, 16 Outlook rules redirecting to new folders, 60 emails in the inbox that were beyond the rules. All cleaned up this morning in 48 uninterupted minutes. I am now down to 11 items in my inbox and all other emails have been responded to and dealt with.
If anyone has not read the above thread and integrated it with the Effective with Email podcast, you are seriously missing out. The content that Cedric provided is amazing. Use these tools. You will be shocked how much time it frees up for you.
