I've been enjoying the same strategy. During my month off I moved all my email accounts to Google Apps and have been unsubscribing to most everything. Email seems much more manageable now. Cheers.

There must be something in the water. I decided to do the exact same thing this week. It's gotten ridiculous how many emails I get from companies that I have shopped from in the past. The worst offender is Neiman Marcus -- who incidentally I have never bought anything from.


I've been surprised by how well this works actually. In an effort to trim down the amount of time I spend going through emails, I started to unsubscribe from lists that I has somehow managed to get on that were not delivering any value, and I have noticed a significant decrease in the number of new emails I receive each day since doing so. Thankfully, the days of impossible to get off of lists seem to be behind us!
