How many emails do you get in a day? Are all of them the useful and legitimate ones? No, right? As per the recent studies, a professional usually get around 80-100 emails a day but only 50-55 of them are actually legitimate. We often subscribe to some websites unintentionally and then starts the unending newsletters and promotional offers barraging in our inboxes. Cleanfox is a free web service that will help you delete newsletter, unsubscribe from unwanted email subscriptions & help you clean up your Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo, etc, email accounts.
Overflowed inboxes are heavy on our minds and basically, we need to take a good amount of time from our busy schedule to check all your emails, read the important ones and delete the useless ones. The worst part is that some important emails often get unnoticed because of these useless, promotional and bombarding emails.
Not only does it clog your inbox but also leaves an adverse effect on the environment. Studies suggest that every email adds around 0.14 ounces (4 grams) of CO2 into the environment which means that if you are sending 65 emails a day, you are contributing CO2 equal to that emitted by a regular car drive of 1km. And all this while we were thinking that getting digital saves paper thereby preventing pollution. Thankfully, we have some third party applications which can help us cleaning our inboxes. Cleanfox is one of such useful applications.
