re: 8 Modest Proposals For Reducing Email
These are good ideas; some are included in my book, Unload Email Overload. We have to tell ourselves--and everyone else--email is not a priority and today's email should never steal today's plan. Thank you, Bob

Minimize email and you likely force people back to the phone. Problems there are worse, so biggest benefit would be to simply age mail out more quickly from inbox (file it if you want to save it).

True, these suggestions seem pretty harsh, but you have to admit that email bloat has become a serious time suck. I feel like I spend more time curating my inbox than I do actually composing/answering "real" email.

re: 8 Modest Proposals For Reducing Email
Wow, this is a great primer on how to make end users hate IT's guts even more than they do already! Seriously, email can be a pox, but most knowledge workers live in their inboxes. If you make the corporate email system unwelcoming, they'll start communicating via their gmail accounts, and then where are you in terms of security and ediscovery?

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
