Gmail's Priority Inbox and this search trick will fix your email headache
There's no shortage of ways to manage your email, but if you use Gmail, here's a one-two punch that'll quickly clean up your inbox.
The crux of our email overload comes down to two things: too much quantity and needing to sift through that deluge to get what you actually need. To fix the first issue, try Gmail's Priority Inbox.
Once turned on, the feature sorts your email into four main categories: Primary, Social, Promotions and Updates. You can drag and drop emails to move them between categories, but by and large, this system will let you weed out the hundreds of shopping newsletters you were probably never going to read and keeps the important stuff right in front of you.
