If you are that person with 300 emails in your inbox, you are probably using your inbox as your to-do list. In general, this is a bad idea. However, there are ways to bring email clutter under control. Since 2004, Gmail has been an important email provider and there are more than 1.5 billion Gmail accounts.If you use one of those accounts, these tips can help.
Snooze an email
If you really use your inbox as your to-do list, consider using the "Snooze" option. You can find that option in the list of options next to the email and it looks like a little clock. Choosing this option will remove the email from your inbox and send it back to your inbox a week later or whenever you specify when you hit "Snooze". A quick fix for something you just don't have time to deal with right now.Read More.
Manage your labels
After you have reviewed an email, you will either delete it or save it. Here is where clutter can build up. With Gmail, you can create a "label" that is functionally equivalent to storing the email in a separate folder. However, if you have many different tasks you are dealing with, you can quickly build up dozens of labels and scrolling down a lot of labels can get more and more tedious. Chances are, there are only a few tasks that are on your top burner. Tasks that were important last month are no longer active, but are still getting in the way of finding the label you want in the labels list.The best option here is to select "hide" for this label. Hiding will not hide it completely, but will move it down the list of labels and put it below the "More".
Still feel like you would like to get rid of some of the folders below the "More" while still not losing the labeling of the email. Create a new "Hidden" label and nest the no longer important labels under this " hidden" label. Then "Hide" the "Hidden" label. You can do all this by clicking the three little dots next to each label.
Gmail rewrites links
Gmail is packed with useful functions. We all know Gmail scans emails to check for spam and viruses. Did you also know that Gmail replaces every link in an email you receive with a redirect to provide more security for your link? You can see this redirect if you inspect the html of your email.
