We get too much email, whether legitimate or spam. There are days when I spend more time using Mail than any other app on my Mac.
That’s a fact I’m not proud of, and would like to change. But email messages keep coming, day after day, and you know what it’s like to be gone for two or three days and have to dig back into the email backlog.
Well, dear Mac users, there’s a way to analyze your email usage. Mailsum is an inexpensive and insightful app that scans your email, and gives you a different perspective on how you use email.
Ask yourself these basic questions:
How many messages do you send each day? What is your average response time for each message? What is your most productive email time of the day?
Chances are good you don’t have answers to those questions, but they bring up other thoughts. How many messages do you send a day, receive a day– or, a week or month? What’s the trend?
Mailsum scans your email and gives you the answer to those questions and more. The answers for me were quite revealing. Here’s what you get after Mailsum scans and analyzes your email.
See how this works? With a little more information about your habits you begin to see where you can make changes to control your email life.
Mailsum doesn’t stop with simply a single scan of your email. It also tracks usage over time so you can see the trends.
If your life is heavily dominated by email, let Mailsum analyze your messages and usage (it does both), so you’ll have an idea of where to improve your habits for greater efficiency.
Mailsum is inexpensive and simple to use, but the reports are very modest and could use more detail, but after the first scan and results you’ll see ways to improve your email management.
