Say Goodbye to Email Pain With My New Inbox Friend

Whoever said nothing good in life is free has obviously never tried InboxVudu.

Because honestly, who hasn’t suffered from inbox pains at one point or another? Like that one time you saw an urgent email from your boss and thought, “I’ll get back to that in a second,” (and a second became straight up never), or when you forgot to respond to your colleague’s potluck inquiry and ended up suffering from a horrific nut allergy (true story).

So for this email tool to actually be free blows my mind because not only will it save you from endless Tylenol and a potential severe allergic reaction, but it’ll also save you a ton of time.

I came across InboxVudu by sheer luck – one of my Twitter friends happened to retweet something for early access, and my curiosity was piqued.

THE WHAT

InboxVudu does a few things:

  • Spots messages you need to reply to and follow-up on
  • Reminds you of these each day in a life-saving email
  • Summarises the messages and even highlights the key information so you can work through it at the speed of light!

InboxVudu is basically a free Intelligent Assistant that reminds you of your most important meetings and events via email – minus the paychecks and forced interactions.

THE HOW-TO

Do you know what was one of the biggest selling points of InboxVudu for me?

IT’S SO EASY – THERE ISN’T REALLY A HOW-TO.

That’s right! There could be a hefty instruction manual, but all you have to do is:

1.) Sign up:

2.) Open the Daily Digest when it comes around each day to see which messages you need to reply to or follow up on.

(Love how the requests and important bits are highlighted—makes it a lot easier to skim, and I’m one click away from responding).

If I want to see all my messages I can click through to a web page that has all that info in one place. It also lets me remove the messages I have dealt with already so I can use it as my ultimate To Do list.

3.) The Follow-ups section is especially useful:

(My favorite feature – I almost never remember what I email people, so to be reminded of my unanswered requests is extremely useful).

4.) Repeat each day and watch your life change for the better!

As I said up front, I can’t believe it’s free and as it’s so easy to start using, you’d be a fool not to try it out!
