I have set up a smart mailbox called “EMPTY” on my Mac, which is always … empty. I open it every time I don’t want to look at my inbox, to avoid jumping right into answering mode or getting stressed about something I took a glimpse of there. So I start Mail, switch to “EMPTY” with Alt-1 immediately, and keep doing what I was about to do […]

I hate to go through my inbox only to realize that for every two emails I’ve processed, five new ones have just arrived. So the key benefit of having a YESTERDAY smart mailbox is that this list of messages never grows, and you can actually get to the bottom of it.
