Struggling with dozens of newsletters in your inbox? (or should I say “Imbox”? </troll>)
I use this super simple organizational trick / habit when signing up for newsletters.
Using an email alias

Can’t remember if this was GMail-only or not, nevertheless it works with protonmail too for example.
Newsletter emails should be silent
Newsletters can be read with calm, a day / a week later and can still provide the same value.
I prefer to get notifications only for important things, and newsletter certainly don’t fall into that category.
So, I set up a filter on protonmail
This filter takes every email with the before mentioned pattern (
[username][email protected]) and puts it in the folder “News”.
This is how the filter looks like:
The folder “News” is programmed to never send me a notification for incoming emails:
This is how I reduce the newsletter-stress I was perceiving.
I am interested to know if you are experiencing a similar fatigue.
