Many people struggle with the volume of email they receive each day. Fortune editor Leigh Gallagher believes that’s about to change. Tools such as Slack, Mailstrom, Inbox Pause, Boomerang and Unroll.me can help you better sort emails and unsubscribe from unwanted lists.
It’s not just tools that are evolving, but corporations and policies, too. “A few years ago, Volkswagen said it would stop sending emails from its servers to company-owned BlackBerrys after the end of its workday; other companies have instilled email ‘amnesty’ during the last two weeks of the year.” Germany, in an effort to reduce stress, is even considering legislation to make it illegal for employers to contact employees after hours.
