There are two types of people in this world:
- People who archive incoming emails when they are finished with them, and try to achieve “inbox zero”
- People who leave all incoming email in their “inbox” forever but use “Mark as Unread” or Star/Flag message to indicate items still requiring action
If you’re a Type #1 person, you can stop reading now.
If are a “never archive anything” type person, I’d like to make a case for why you should become an “inbox zero” type person and archive emails when you’re done with them.
