It’s happening again: my inbox is getting ridiculously overcrowded, with many unread ezines and marketing stuff left glaring at me in bold font…
I’ve learned to use the rules function in Microsoft Outlook, and most junk now goes into the junk folder, which helps keep the overwhelm feelings down. But for the life of me, I can’t figure out why legitimate newsletters and orders go to "Junk," and some viagra and stock garbage still gets into the inbox.
