Tips offered to declutter inboxes

Email overload
Don’t let email overload cause you stress.

If your Outlook inbox is overflowing, you probably feel more stressed — and less productive.

To protect your inbox from spam and clutter, the CyberSafe at USPS team offers these tips:

• Never use your Postal Service email address for personal or non-work purposes, such as social media and online shopping.

• Don’t use your USPS address to subscribe to notifications that aren’t related to your work, such as news feeds, listservs and updates from retailers.

• Before hitting “reply all” on an email chain, look at all the recipients and make sure each one has a business need for the information.

• Set Outlook “rules” to declutter your inbox automatically. The ServiceNow Knowledgebase site has instructions on creating these rules.

The CyberSafe at USPS Blue page has additional information on effectively managing emails.
