Inbox Zero

Inbox Zero is a phrase coined by blogger and productivity writer Merlin Mann in 2006 to refer to email management techniques and strategies designed to keep the user’s email inbox as empty as possible. Techniques that fall under the Inbox Zero umbrella include unsubscribing from unnecessary or unwanted mailing lists, setting up aggressive email filters, communicating directly with the high volume senders in your address book, and daily processing of the email inbox to ensure emails are properly dealt with, delegated, deleted, or otherwise removed from the inbox.
