UNSUBSCRIBE Use Clean­fox (clean­fox.io) to scan your in­box to delete and unsubscribe from mar­ket­ing emails. Pre­fer flex­i­bil­ity? Use Un­sub­scriber (getun­sub­scriber.com) – just drag and drop the email you don’t want and it will never ap­pear in your in­box again.

SLOW IT DOWN Re­duce the temp­ta­tion to check emails through­out the day by turn­ing off no­ti­fi­ca­tion pings. For iphone, go to Set­tings, Ac­counts and Pass­word, then Fetch New Data, to turn off push no­ti­fi­ca­tions. Select Man­ual for Fetch Data. For An­droid, go to Email Set­tings and change Fre­quency to Man­ual. Set aside time to check and re­spond. If you don’t want peo­ple to think you are ig­nor­ing them, turn on au­to­matic replies to say you’re check­ing your in­box pe­ri­od­i­cally.

DON’T LOOK BACK Once you are on top of your emails, stay or­gan­ised. While web-based email ser­vices, such as Gmail, don’t of­fer an ar­chiv­ing process, they won’t delete your emails ei­ther. Why not set up fold­ers for house­hold bills, re­ceipts and so on. Delete any­thing you don’t need, to avoid clog­ging up your in­box with hun­dreds of emails.
