Kaikki ottamasi lähestymistapa sijoittui kolmeen eri luokkaan: Suodatus, hämärtyminen ja Procrastinating. Lukijat kuten Ray ja jigglypuff -suodattimet:
I use Thunderbird as my email client. I have different folders that I filter the email I receive into. The newsletters and other subscribed emails go into a lower priority folder.
One word: Filters. I just setup filters for all of this type of mail. Some I let go to inbox, others I let go straight to a folder without seeing it first. Then when I have time or want to go through them, I do.
Muut lukijat käyttivät erillisiä tilejä jakamaan sähköpostinsa. Crab käyttää suodattimien hybridiä yhdessä tilissä ja täysin erillinen sähköpostitili:
Filters and folders, plus a separate gmail account for discussion lists that I only log into when I want to read my mailing lists.
Tags > folders, but gmail’s filters aren’t as sophisticated as a real email client, so it evens out.
MGtrek haluaa ohittaa suodattimet kokonaan erillisten sähköpostitilien ylläpitämiseksi:
While filters can help, for me they are quite a bit of work to maintain and generally require that your email client be online. So using filters doesn’t help when checking from my mobile devices – and that is when I need the sorting the most.
What I’ve found has worked very well is to have multiple email accounts. Mine is set up in three layers. My friends use my primary account address. Email that comes from ‘reliable’ places that I am fairly sure won’t sell my address and will be sending me announcements and fliers go into the “registered” email account. Bacn and places that I feel have a higher risk of selling my address go into the “mailing list” email account. - And of course, there are standard spam filters on each with the personal address set higher and the mailing list one set lower.
It may seem like a pain to have three accounts (actually, six – I have one set for personal, and one set for business), but when you consider how many folders you create using the filter process, it all washes out. Plus, I’ve found that I have a different mindset when I am in the different accounts – similar to how you feel when you are in your personal email as compared to your work account.
Oh… and for those wonderful sites that insist on your email and you KNOW are going to spam you and sell your address, I send them to my “pit” email. The one that is only ever checked when I am looking for the info they are sending me that minute.
Muut lukijat olivat hyvin tietoisia siitä, että hyvä suodatin tai hyökkäyssuunnitelma voisi auttaa, mutta he eivät olleet käymässä sen ympärille (tai havaitsivat, että alikansit / tarrat eivät toiminut heille). Ed kirjoittaa:
Gmail Snooze is great because it gets rid of the email for the time being, and when it comes back it appears in your inbox were you either deal with it, or Snooze it again. I never use filters/rules for Bacn because once an email goes straight to a subfolder, I rarely dig it out again. Filters/rules are good for emails of lesser priority, stuff that’s barely above spam (like subscriptions that you usually don’t look at).
Josh eroaa hieman Bacnin määritelmämme kanssa, mutta suostuu suodattimiin, olisi hyödyllistä:
Firstly bacon is something I want all the time. So I wouldn’t call those emails bacn, I would call my friend’s emails bacon. But either way I haven’t set up any filters yet, however I have been meaning to for years. Gmails new “important” emails have been working fairly well. Maybe now that I’ve been reminded I’ll make a point to create some filters… maybe tomorrow.
Onko jotain lisättävä Bacn-vitsaus keskusteluun? Kuulkaa alla olevissa huomautuksissa.
