LeanMail Inbox480

An Outlook plugin that gives you control over large volume of email by separating non-essential from essential email.
LeanMail Inbox480 automatically separates your essential mail from your non-essential mail so that you can focus on what’s important and urgent and still access what’s non-essential with one click.

What is
Leanmail Inbox480?

If you receive over 40 emails per day, this Outlook plugin will be one of your favorite tools because not only does it separate mails, it also deletes the non-essential mails over time (you set the expiration date). This way, you'll get in control of the volume and never have to delete those dozens or hundreds of mails that are inconsequential to you or your business because Inbox480 does it for you automatically.

Current ways of dealing with challenges for high volume users
There are any number of ways of dealing with high volumes of email, but here are three of the most common ones:

By using the rules functionality in Outlook, we are able to automatically move emails to a designated folder after they arrive.  This works well for some emails, but it’s not practical to have rules for every sender.

The basic idea here is to use “Mark as unread” for emails you want to return to as a work-around.  The inefficiencies of this method are not really worth mentioning.

The truth is that most people just try to cope.  It reminds me of the sourcerer in Fantasia who is trying to mop up the water that is flowing out of control.
