Does e-mail overload make you want to pull your hair out? You’re not alone. According to a study that analyzed a database of over 5 million e-mails, the average e-mail user receives about 147 messages per day, including junk mail, and spends more than 2.5 hours on e-mail alone. On average, about 71 of those get deleted and about 12 require a great deal of work, which usually takes up about 90 minutes per day.
Knowing there are only 8 hours in an average work day, spending 2.5 hours on e-mail is downright unacceptable. That is, if your line of work doesn’t revolve around e-mails, i.e., you’re not an e-mail support staff for some customer service company.
Okay, so 147 may be a lot for some. But you get the picture, right? Depending on your mileage, sorting through e-mail can be a time-consuming exercise, especially nowadays when extra time is fast becoming a scarce commodity for most of us.
SaneBox is a cloud-based e-mail service that promises to save you loads of time by sorting your inbox for you. SaneBox’s algorithm decides which e-mail is important and moves the less important messages out of your sight into a separate folder, summarizing them for your quick perusal. SaneBox can work with just about any e-mail client available – Gmail, Yahoo, Exchange, Apple Mail, Outlook, AOL, iPhone, Android, etc.
SaneBox also lets you create folders for e-mails you would like to defer until you’re ready for them – SaneTomorrow for e-mails you’d like to see in your inbox the following day, SaneNextWeek for next Monday, or some other custom defer folder. If a company still sends you mails despite unsubscribing to their newsletters more than a hundred times already, simply drag the e-mail into your SaneBlackHole folder, and you’ll never hear from that sender again.
As well, SaneBox comes with an ingenious auto-nagging feature that notifies you if an e-mail you sent has not been replied to. All you need to do is send a CC or BCC to email@example.com, for instance, and the message pops right back into your inbox if it doesn’t get a reply in 5 days.
Depending on your needs, subscription to SaneBox starts at $2.04 per month. You can also try it out for free for two weeks. If after two weeks you decide the service is not for you, SaneBox puts everything back to the way it was before you subscribed.
