Finally, I get a lot of questions about handling the daily deluge of email, and I’ll share a solution I’ve found that is free, easy, and extremely helpful: Unroll.me. The program scans your daily email for things you’ve subscribed to (and let’s face it, sometimes you don’t even realize you’ve subscribed, and hence the junk). It offers you a choice to keep it coming to your inbox, unsubscribe, or add it to a “rollup”. A rollup gets delivered to your inbox as a single message, but it in reality can aggregation of all those pesky messages in thumbnail form. You can scroll through them and click or not. GREAT!!!
See? Toldja there was a lot of helpful stuff out there!
