If there’s one thing that most of us agree upon, Mac or Windows PC user, it’s email. It’s the killer app of the mis-information age, the app we love to hate, though not because of the app itself (though that happens), but more because we hate email. Here’s a way to hate it less.
Archive The Anger
Email sucks up a precious amount of time each day, and with spam, malware, and the disease of cc-ing everyone on every business email is contagious and spreading.
What can you do to help reduce the stress caused by an overabundance of email in your inbox or email folders?
Put them on ice. Archive the whole mess. It’s still there, of course, but out of sight, out of mind also means less stress, fewer frustrations.
Mail Archiver X is an email archiving app for the Mac that supports just about every important Mac email app– Mail, Eudora, Exchange, Gmail, Outlook, Entourage, Powermail, Postbox, Thunderbird.
Install it. Setup it up. Let it archive your email. With less email messages in front of your eyeballs you’ll feel better, work faster, and be more inclined not to engage in email rage.
Once you’ve archived all the email messages you don’t want to clutter up your email app, they can safely be deleted. Out of sight, out of mind.
Mail Archiver X comes with plenty of useful features which work well for a Mac user with just too much email, or a small office or business which needs to keep track of all email correspondence.
For example, email messages can be stored on the Mac, or converted to store and archive into a Filemaker database.
Either way, searching through tens of thousands of archived email messages is still as easy as using Spotlight.
Email messages can also be exported from the archive to PDF format, Evernote, or made ready for storage in other databases. Archiving the mass of email is liberating, too. Before using Mail Archiver X my inbox had over 500 messages (many of us use the inbox as a pseudo-todo list), and dozens and dozens of folders, each with hundreds of older messages.
It was a great feeling watching those messages disappear.
