Your Inbox can get out of control! Use these helpful tips to clean things up!

  1. Need to keep email but don’t want it to clutter your inbox? Use labels in Gmail to move items from your inbox. Create the label and after selecting the email, choose “Move to” and move it to the label. It leaves your inbox, but can be found in the label folder!
  2. Consider setting your inbox to “Unread First”. This keeps your unread messages at the top of your inbox and the rest beneath.
