I’m testing Omar’s Thread Killer Outlook add-in and it’s making a world of a difference in my inbox triage. Normally I spend some good percentage of the day dealing with threads that I’m only tangentally interested in. I’d either delete them or file them as new mails on the thread flow to my inbox.
Now when I see a thread that I know I’m not interested or needed in, I simply click on any message in the thread and click the “Kill Thread” button in my toolbar and like magic, I never see it again. Since I’ve started using it yesterday I’ve noticed the amount of mail in my inbox drop and I’m seeing much more relevant mail in my Inbox folder now. I’ve killed about 25 threads, which has saved me from 72 pieces of mail ever hitting my inbox in about 24 hours.
