The Problem of Email Overload and How to Overcome It

The Impact of Email Overload and the Solution for Effective Management

The Problem of Email Overload

According to some surveys, every minute approximately 150 million emails are sent, which totals up to 90 billion emails every hour and more than 200 billion every day. That is a significant amount of emails and no big surprise that many inboxes get filled up with messages. We all might have experienced the problem of finding an email that we have in our inbox but we received it in the past.

The Effects of Email Overload on Stress

A study conducted by researchers at Loughborough University set out to investigate the physical effects of email. They tracked the blood pressure, heart rate, and cortisol (stress hormone) levels of 30 government employees throughout their daily work activities, while the subjects themselves kept a diary. The findings showed that email was not the reason behind stress, it was the volume of emails that made things hectic. Hoisted heart rate, expanded pulse, and increased cortisol levels were all displayed by the subjects, which, after some time can prompt different genuine long-haul sicknesses.

Coping with Email Overload

What should we do now? Do we have to delete all our emails? Should we contact through carrier pigeon? Perhaps, the only solution is effective management of emails.

Oasys Mail Manager: A Solution to Email Overload

Before using Oasys, like most people, I was also using Microsoft Outlook for my emails. Outlook is no doubt good for sending and receiving emails but if we talk about storing and organizing emails it does not come up to expectations. Since the moment I joined Oasys and started using Mail Manager, issues that I faced with Outlook were history. The emails can easily be viewed and categorized by topic, number of variables, and projects.

Key Features of Mail Manager

  1. Centralized Email Storage: With its help, you can store everything in one central location, it can save you from getting stuck in your mailbox, which means if someone leaves the company, your valuable data will stay safe.
  2. Efficient Search Tool: The search tool of Outlook gives too broad results that I would need to swim through many email results to locate the right one. This truly isn’t the situation with Mail Manager, it smartly filters out anything which I haven’t particularly requested to find.

Conclusion: Simplifying Your Work Life

You can’t avoid an email pop-up while you are viewing an important mail and easily get distracted. You can make your working life simpler and easier by installing Mail Manager and get the peace of mind you need.
