Ignore Cc...

Get far too much email? So do I... Hundreds on some day. How much do I actually need to read? Probably about 10-20% max. But the trouble is, you dont know if you need to know till you've read it. By when your time is already wasted.

I've been meaning to do this for some while now, but finally I got round to creating an Outlook Rule for this.

So now, any email where I'm on the Cc gets moved to a separate folder ("Cc-Junk") and marked as already read. I almost set it to just delete the email but I thought for the moment I'd just move it and see how it goes.

2 days later I am already finding it makes a real difference. The cc stuff is there in case someone calls me and is expecting I have read it (when I have to do a quick scan!) but meanwhile I can focus on the much smaller number of emails that are actually to me!
