By Bob Herman IT Tropolis FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA -To organize your Inbox, use a similar concept as paper.  First ask yourself: Do I really need to keep this email, or can I throw it away/delete it?  Next ask yourself: Does it require action or am I keeping it only for historical/future reference?  If keeping only for future reference, immediately move/file the email into a sub-folder (Customers > Customer A, Propects > Prospect A, Vendors > Vendor A).  If email requires action, should you delegate; if so, delegate immediately and delete/or file email to a sub-folder.  The only remaining items will be emails that require action by yourself.  Now roll-up your sleeves and apply some elbow grease!  Once action is complete, delete or file email into a sub-folder.
