Quick email tip if you need to clear out your inbox

A couple of days ago I wrote about clearing out your email using mail.app and I have written about email before, like how entering your email at your inbox is a bad idea and how to email a support request.

In this post I want to highlight something that the lovely Elaine Henry mentioned to me when she was reading that post from a couple of days ago, her first idea to remove email wasn't anything to do with looking at the size of the email (which was a tip I had mentioned), it was to do with the importance of the email.

She suggested searching for "Unsubscribe" as a way to remove perhaps unnecessary emails.

Her reasoning being that oftentimes emails that allow you to unsubscribe are generic emails with little permanent value. This makes a lot of sense and is something I will be running on my various email addresses.
