0 unread in gmail. I don't really understand the '0 in my inbox' distinction though, since I don't do much filtering into other folders. I do label certain things, but generally just keep everything in the inbox folder (but gmail doesn't show a number unless there are unread).

I have about 28,000 emails in my main Gmail inbox at the moment, but zero unread. I delete tons of things unread if I can tell from the subject line that I don't need to care about them. (I have four Gmail accounts, one of which I haven't looked at in years, and a Hotmail account that I mostly have just to sign up for stupid bullshit that demands an email address.) Once a year or so, I go in and delete a year's worth of the oldest stuff.

I really don't understand why/how people leave emails unread. Read 'em or delete 'em as soon as they show up.

i treat my personal gmail like an old usenet group - there's a constant flood of stuff from mailing lists etc. and i just click on stuff that catches my eye or seems important. thankfully google is generally pretty good about putting "emails i should be aware of" in my primary inbox though it's obviously very biased when it comes to what advertising ends up there vs. "spam".

work email is 0 always.

Oh my email game is a complete mess, I read everything as it comes in and say "shit I can't deal with this right now, at some point I'll skim through the inbox and respond to this" and sometimes I do and sometimes I don't -- as a result, nothing's unread but also the whole thing is a morass of tasks undealt-with!

well that's why you mark it unread! voodoo chili's way is exactly my way. it's a hack but it basically works. the only achilles heel of this system is when you're blowing through emails and forget to mark something unread. i do occasionally toy with the idea of using different color flags for different subjects, like a glimpse into a better way, a more deliberate and organized way, but i never end up doing it.

PBKR, Thursday, 19 May 2022 23:25 (two months ago) link

see this is why i think moving stuff you've dealt with out of the inbox is good.

if you leave everything in the inbox and manually mark as unread the emails that you still need to deal with:

read = i have dealt with it
unread = i have not dealt with it. i might have read it. but maybe not.
in the inbox = means nothing

if you move stuff out of the inbox once you've dealt with it then

read = i have read it
unread = i have not read it
in the inbox = i have not dealt with it

surely this is better? it's the same amount of work.

We use the "unread means not actioned" method at work, on 2 inboxes shared by 4 staff that handles thousands of emails a day. Judicious use of filters to auto-move the bulk of it to set folders also in use .Without all that we'd be up shite creek. A lot of the emails are ignorable reporting from server alerts or order updates, but theres just as much important crap coming in constantly from actual customers as well.

My current personal work account has 500ish unread messages but about 400 of those are just Jira ticket updates.

Tracer Hand, Friday, 20 May 2022 07:08 (two months ago) link

Work email is a task list essentially. Delete anything that isn't relevant, move to a series of folders when task is complete (or far enough in the past that it's effectively complete) and trust in the now pretty blameless email search functions if I need to recover anything.

Personal email is a bit messier, but basically the same principles apply (albeit no folders with Gmail, just archive and use the search when necessary)>

Yeah, I use my sent mail more than my inbox on some level. My “system” so to speak:

1. Send email.
2. Set calendar reminder to follow up on response needed (markups I’ve sent, signatures I need, responses not received, etc.).
3. When calendar pops up, find original sent email, respond to all and follow up.
4. Lather, rinse, repeat until task is completed.

eh, i guess i'm comparing the hassle of re-marking "unprocessed" emails as unread (a key press) with the hassle of removing processed emails from the inbox. they're both a keystroke (unless you're the kind of graybeard/sicko who files emails into specific folders).

you're right that you have to do the archive keystroke more if you remove stuff from the inbox than the mark unread keystroke if you do that.

but if you use gmail, you're presumably also using the keyboard to change to the next email. there's a key to do that, but there's a key to do that _and_ archive the current email. so if you're changing to the next email anyway, it's no extra work.

unless you're the kind of graybeard/sicko who files emails into specific folders

i have maybe a few dozen gray hairs, and no beard ... I guess I'm a sicko? But, seriously, I think some of this is related to the fact that the language and systems (e.g. the term "folder") are semantically connected to physical organizational systems. I was putting documents in actual manila folders before I had email, and filed emails into specific folders. It's a cognitive task that I associate with organizing things, having all the things in their proper places, and knowing where those are. ... Metaphorically, the non-foldered emails feel like stacks of paper all over the place.

sarahell, Friday, 20 May 2022 17:58 (two months ago) link

I could tell you stories about the guy I worked for in the early-00s who would print out emails and news articles and keep them in folders. He never threw anything away and his filing system was just these very general topics like “insurance captives” so he ended up with nearly two dozen stacks of paper 1-3 feet tall around his giant office. It was like a kid building a fort out of paper no one was ever going to read. And he viewed himself as an environmentalist, but he was just a boomer.

sarahell, Friday, 20 May 2022 18:12 (two months ago) link

xp - I don't know if he still does this, but this local legendary punk dude who has a record label wouldn't read email, so he would have his employees print out emails that were sent to him and then fax them to him.

sarahell, Friday, 20 May 2022 18:14 (two months ago) link

An insurance captive is an insurance company created by some larger companies that only insures the company that created it. I haven’t dealt with them in a long time (and not much at that) but they had a lot of tax advantages and allow the company to keep any underwriting profits instead of having them go out the door to a third party insurer.

do you all read emails sequentially? (moreso for business than personal).

I don't use a threaded view in Outlook, but if I get an email that's part of a thread, I just read the most recent and then read all of the previous ones there, so I know what the latest is and the history of discussion.

but I do know a lot of people who start at the bottom and work their way up, so they might respond to an early email in a thread that has since been contradicted later. like, maybe a thread says "can you send me a mockup of your latest presentation", and 5 emails in someone says "actually, I'd like to hold off doing that until further internal review", but the person sees the old email first and sends the presentation before they see that later they were asked not to.

idk if i'm the weird one or not, i always assume people read the older messages first even though I don't.

If they were letters, they would be a literal hill to die on, and lo, we would think you were mad. I salute you.

I save all my important letters fwiw

one month passes...

returned to work for the first time since 6/27, and...only had 130 unread emails! mind boggled, that's....really not that many! - in my previous role, that woulda been 1,000 - 2,000 at least.

and yet still, I can't begin working until all of them are read, even if I flag them as important for later. or it'll drive me nuts.
