Email Inbox Control Tip

Email is both a blessing and a curse, especially if you’re trying to get work done and the messages keep flying in.

By default, most email programs are set up to alert the user when new messages come in, and turning it off when you want to get some work done isn’t really that efficient.

What email needs is a pause button and for those using Gmail, there is something available the does exactly that!

The Inbox Pause option is part of the offerings in the add-on from Boomarang.

Not only can you quickly pause and unpause incoming messages, but you can also alert senders that you are in the pause mode in the event that the message they sent is urgent.

When you hit the pause button, a big yellow banner will appear at the top and you can choose to automatically unpause the inbox at a specific length of time you choose when you pause.

It’s a really easy way to control the flow of interruptions that plague all of us on a daily basis.
