Professionals rely on email as their main means of communication. Despite all efforts to eliminate it, email remains a vital communication channel.
These problems arise due to the volume of emails we receive. If the date of receipt is not checked, it will determine its priority.

Do not be afraid to have a lot of email folders
Your inbox can hold unlimited numbers of email folders. To organize your messages at a fine level, it’s common to have as many as 30 labels or folders in your email inbox.

Before adding additional tools to your email client, ensure that it is compatible with them. It is not productive to scroll through your email and lose sight of the task at hand.
