Comment: Need to be able to expire emails (Score 1) 232

by BenSchuarmer (#47699197) Attached to: Daimler's Solution For Annoying Out-of-office Email: Delete It

I usually have to spend a couple of hours going through my email when I get back from vacation.

Many of them are useless:

  • - somebody brought doughnuts
  • - people discussing where do go for lunch last Tuesday
  • - who was out of the office every day
  • - a customer had a simple problem and one of my co-workers solved it

Some are useful

  • - policy changes
  • - a customer had a complicated problem and one of my co-workers solved in a way that we will want to remember

Threaded email readers help. Look at the most recent couple emails for each subject, and see whether there is something I need to do or file away for future use.

What I'd really like is if all of the dated stuff would evaporate when it's no longer relevant.

If it smells it's chemistry, if it crawls it's biology, if it doesn't work it's physics.
