OtherInbox

OtherInbox can help regain control of your Inbox by automatically organising email clutter.  Acclaimed as a cure for email overload, OtherInbox organises emails from online shopping and social networking sites, enabling you to focus on messages which really matter to you. Acting like a personal assistant for Gmail or Yahoo! Mail the OtherInbox’s spam filter moves the stuff you do not want to read immediately into folders –  the preset labels or folders have “OIB” at the beginning; for example – OIB Finance, etc.

This leads to no clutter, your Inbox gets smaller, saves them time and gives you control over your Inbox. Nothing would be missed as each morning you’ll receive a daily digest that summarises the messages which reached your inbox the previous day.  To put your email on autopilot, check out the OtherInbox at  www.otherinbox.com/
