How to set up your email 


Set the table: There is a formula

Email is the main form of communication today. As the phone supplanted letters, the e-letter has supplanted the phone—well, the voice call part of the phone. A quarter century of email and we are finally starting to sort out how it is best set up. 


Segment 1: The Rule of 3

  • Need 3 email addresses

    • Main, personal email set up in a universal platform (gmail, iCloud)

    • Work or school set up by the institution

Shopping, marketing, survey email again with a universal platform, probably the same you use for your main account



Segment 2: Controlling Spam

  • Unsubscribe as you go and do weekly or monthly culls

  • Some apps available, but they require some maintenance themselves


Segment 3: Inbox Zero and other aspirations 

  • Making rules

  • Making topic inboxes

  • Aim for inbox zero but don’t get too firm about it


Closing: Final thoughts
