Email and inbox clutter is something many business professionals struggle with on a daily basis, so I’m always interested when I see an app or program that claims to tame our email inboxes … especially when I see others commenting about how much they like a particular app or program. SaneBox is one of those programs!
Gmail initiated their new filtering system – priority email, social and promotional, but a lot of people didn’t like it, and it didn’t really help; so many of us still ended up with inboxes that look like the Wild Wild West. The idea behind SaneBox is to prioritize important emails and summarize the rest in an effort to save us from the drowning feeling we get every time we open our email inbox.
I’ve see more and more people using SaneBox these days, and those who do use it swear by it, and claim it does a great job separating the emails you need to see now from those you can consume at your leisure, reserving your inbox for the former.
The program moves unimportant emails from your inbox and tucks them in a separate folder while also summarizing them in a digest. It also allows you to activate additional folders like @SaneBlackHole, which deletes everything from that sender going forward and @SaneNextWeek, which hides a message until Monday when it’ll show back up in your inbox. The Sane Attachments feature also scans emails in your Inbox for attachments, puts them in Dropbox, Evernote and Note, and replaces them with a link. I love that it integrates with Dropbox and Evernote, and really like the idea of these extra folders, especially @SaneBlackHole!
One great thing about SaneBox is that it works with Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, iCloud Mail, AIM and AOL Mail, Exchange and any other IMAP or WebDAV email service.[clickToTweet tweet=”Have you checked out SaneBox yet?
