Declutter your Inbox by scheduling newsletters for Saturday morning
Schedule social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter) emails for evening to avoid distraction during work hours
We only need access metadata (think message envelopes). We don't store messages only move them across Gmail labels.
"Email is not a messaging protocol. It's a todo list. As a todo list protocol, the new protocol should give more power to the recipient than email does. I want there to be more restrictions on what someone can put on my todo list."
