Email just got a whole lot better

The average person spends roughly 28% of their time processing email. 

I can’t deny it, I’m a heavy email user and I wouldn’t be surprised if I spend 40% or even 45% of my time reading and responding to email. I accept email as a huge part of my life and a vital form of communication. 

The thing I cannot accept is the insane amount of unimportant email I receive. If this email consisted of spam I would get a spam filter and be done with it. Unfortunately it’s email I’d like to see eventually, but it shouldn’t be distracting me from messages that actually deserves my attention.

On a mission to find a solution, I quickly racked up a lengthy list of failed attempts, including Gmail Tabs. 

After realizing what didn’t work, I began to understand what I needed out of an email overload solution: 

  1. Importance prioritization 
  2. Cross device functionality 
  3. Seamless integration into existing workflows 

As I began losing hope, a friend suggested a new service called, SaneBox. It is without a doubt the best thing to happen to email, since email was invented.

SaneBox is smart. The tool understands what’s important to you based on your past behavior with your inbox. After a quick analysis of your inbox, SaneBox automatically filters out unimportant email into a separate folder and summarizes it in a daily digest so you don’t miss anything. This functionality leaves your inbox with only important/high-priority email. It literally saves me 6-7 hours a week.

As if this wasn’t enough, SaneBox boasts a full suite of email productivity features such as: SaneBlackhole, which enables you to unsubscribe from annoying email senders in one click and Automatic follow-up reminders that notify you when someone doesn’t respond to one of your emails. SaneBox is also compatible across devices, so it will work on you desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile device.
