    SaneBox

    SaneBox offers smart filtering that delivers unimportant messages to a SaneLater folder that you can check at your leisure. That leaves your inbox filled only with messages from clients, employees and other people you interact with on a regular basis—cutting a list of dozens or perhaps hundreds of emails a day down to just the precious few.

    SaneBox delivers other time-saving tricks, too, like a drag-and-drop unsubscribe feature that lets you drag an unwanted message to the SaneBlackHole folder to forever filter messages from that sender. There's also a Snooze folder where you can hold quasi-important messages that need attention eventually, along with response tracking that notifies you when a recipient doesn’t reply to your message by a certain time.

Is your inbox out of control? Join the club. While a number of collaboration tools are coming to the fore with the goal of becoming an organization's main mode of communication, email is still by far the most prevalent platform for sharing information. We spend hours every day sorting through incoming messages in an attempt to keep on top of projects, but have to deal with tons of spam, scams and less than productive trash. If only there was a better way to deal with all the mess. Well, there just may be.

Our sister site, Small Business Computing, recently identified six tools that can help you wrangle the chaos of your inbox. We've featured those tools in this slideshow.
