5 tools to help you get to 'inbox zero'

Having an empty email inbox means all the incoming information is in your control. But how often does that ever happen? For anyone who manages projects using email as their primary mode of communication, an honest answer has to be: not often. And the moment you clear your inbox, another deluge of messages invariably arrives.

Rather than trying to achieve what isn’t actually possible, why not seek out better alternatives such as online collaboration tools. Resolving the problem of email overload, these enhance your collaboration and coordination with your team members, while keeping your email inbox free for external messages, making it much easier to manage.
