How many email addresses do you have? If you answered “one” you might be spending too much time with email. Here’s a way to save time 3 accounts.
Have one account for friends, family, business associates, and one whose mail you want to see the same day they send it. You can also have a second account for ministry newsletters, advertisements from companies you want to do business with and mail you would like to get, but don’t need to see right away. You can quickly buzz through this account, every other day, or twice a week. Finally, have one account for junk mail. When you have to give your email to register for a web site, but you don’t want to be on their list, give the junk mail account, which you never check.
Most internet service providers will give several account names at no extra cost. Why not take advantage of their offer by setting up a 3 account system that will allow you to better redeem the time.
