Today, emails have replaced conventional mail, and are very important to us all. But we find that the number of emails we receive daily is so large that just having a look at them, and sorting the ones we want and need, is an onerous talk, and eats away a lot of our precious time, that we could have used more productively.
We receive emails in the form of newsletters, notifications from different persons, organisations and from social networking sites, which could or could not be useful for us. But we lose our productive time while going through so many emails.
Gmail has a built-in feature called “Priority Inbox” which enables us to keep a quick watch on useful emails.
If there could be a system or feature, where the mail service could automatically organise some emails as less important – which were important to us at some point of time, but today they are less important, then we could save a lot of time, which we spend organizing them. Like if we have got a job, the mail related to a new job opening may become less important to us.
Here come OtherInbox, a free third-party service which helps keep our inbox less heavy, and keeps out all the unimportant emails, and puts them in separate folders.
