Playing Whac-A-Mole with Email Subscriptions Feels Great!
Moving email providers is a pain, but a nice side-effect is that I can monitor emails as they trickle into the new, uncluttered mailbox while the DNS changes propagate.
I'm evaluating each email that arrives. If it's a subscription to an email/newsletter list I'm doing one of two things:
- Filtering it to a 'Newsletters' folder that I can read later, or
- Unsubscribing and marking it as junk.
There is no third option.
This feels good.
I'm tired of all the hyper-commercialised "thought leader" bullshit that arrives in my email box that I'd normally just swipe to delete. And all the other 'hot new offers' that periodically sneak in.
Overcoming email management laziness inertia for the win :-)
