Posted by Guest on April 2, 2018

Returning back to work after a relaxing vacation? For many, getting back into a regular working routine after the holidays can be a struggle. The change of pace can take a while to get used to. However, there are many great benefits of taking time off work. Taking a vacation allows you to clear your head, de-stress and renew your energy for the next months of work. The best thing you can do is use this restart as an opportunity to supercharge your productivity. Here are a few tips on how to improve productivity at work after the holidays. Organise Your Emails Despite your Out Of Office Message, after returning back to work from a (long) vacation, you are likely to have countless unopened emails waiting for you in your inbox. One of your first tasks, when you return to the office, should be organising and arranging your emails in order of importance. Focus on tackling your most urgent emails first and set aside the others for a later time. Most email clients, like Mailbird have a Snooze Feature that will let you snooze emails and have them come back at a later time of the day, week or month. This is a great feature to get through your emails fast and to gain control over your inbox while working away on the emails relevant to your current focus. Another good tip is to set an automated reply message on these emails, simply explaining why it may take longer to…

Top 7 Best Out of Office Message Examples March 2018

Posted by Christin on March 14, 2018

Let’s be honest, the last thing on your mind before vacation is putting up an auto-responder email. Half the time, your out of office message is probably an “Oh crap!” moment after you’ve already left the office. Even though you might be soaking up the sun on the beach or tearing up the slopes, your coworkers, customers, and other business associates are still in the office and may not know that you’re unavailable. Failing to tell people that you’re out of the office could come back to bite you, especially if they’re expecting a prompt response. Before heading out on that much needed time off, it’s imperative that you set an out of office reply to let senders know you’re gone. If you’re feeling stumped, we’ve crafted 7 out of office message samples to inspire you. Check them out below! 1. Out Of Office Message – Basic Example Template Hi there, Thank you for your email.

At its core, a vacation responder email simply needs to inform the sender that you are out of the office and when to expect a response. The elements…

Google’s Gmail or Microsoft’s Outlook.com – How to find the best (free) email service in 2018

Posted by Christin on March 5, 2018

If you were to look through your personal contact list right now, it’s probably safe to say that the majority of your contacts will have an email address from one of two services: Google’s Gmail (@gmail.com) or Microsoft’s Outlook.com (@outlook.com). This is unsurprising, considering Gmail has 15.8% and Outlook.com has 6.7% of the email client market share. Both of these free email services are backed by tech giants—Google and Microsoft—and have become the top contenders when choosing what service to use for your personal or small business email needs. But with the two constantly neck and neck in the email race, how do you decide which one is best for you? Google’s Gmail service is the older and most popular of the two—it has over 1 billion monthly active users as of February 2016. Because it’s been around longer, and it has a bigger audience, Gmail is generally considered the industry leader in free email services. Microsoft, on the other hand, launched the free version of Outlook.com in 2012 and has been refining the service ever since. It now has more than 400 million active users and a robust suite of features that rival the competition. On the surface, Google’s Gmail and Microsoft’s Outlook.com seem pretty similar. It’s only when you look at the details that you discover just how much the two differ. And it’s in these details that you’ll find the features that matter most to you to help you choose the right option for your personal or…

7 Reasons to Have More Than One Email Address 2018

Posted by Andrea Loubier on March 4, 2018

Why have multiple email addresses you might ask? When setting up an email account, your first instinct might be to create one email address for all of your email needs. This way you’ll only need to sign into one location to access your emails, and your logins across the web will all use the same email address. For simplicity’s sake, this might seem like a good idea. In reality, the opposite is true. Considering the number of emails people receive on a daily basis, keeping all your emails in one account will actually make email management more complicated, not less. You’ll have a harder time getting to the most important emails as your inbox becomes overloaded with spam and promotional emails. If you’re emailing for personal and professional out of the same account, you run the risk of sending a personal email to a professional contact. Yikes!   Instead, you should have multiple email addresses for different purposes. And if signing into multiple accounts seems troublesome, there’s a simple solution. Using something like the Unified Inbox feature with Mailbird allows you to keep multiple accounts organized in one location. Problem solved! If you’re still not convinced that having multiple email addresses is a good practice, here are 7 reasons you should have more than one email address. 1. To separate business from personal. First and foremost, it’s never a good idea to mix your business and personal inboxes, especially if your personal email address is something goofy from the early…

Infographic: Work Email Trends After Hours

Posted by Guest on December 27, 2017

How Often Do You Check Your Email? There was a time, not that long ago, when anyone who stayed in the office past 5 o’clock was either working hard to get ahead or keep from falling behind. The idea of “working overtime” was considered unusual. Today, however, email and the Internet mean the definition of “working overtime” is a lot fuzzier. Because it’s possible for many professionals to get work done anywhere and anytime they have an Internet connection, it’s no longer unusual for people to be following up on work at all hours of the day. Many of us not only can receive an email from our bosses at 9 p.m. on a Sunday, but have come to expect it, too. There are no regular business hours on the Internet, which is a big part of why more than 269 billion emails are sent every day — workday or not. Email has weakened the line between “work” and “home,” and there are pros and cons. Email has allowed us to work with more flexibility and get tasks done faster, but it also means many of us are living with the stress of our jobs 24/7. While there are numerous tools and techniques available to professionals to help them manage their email inboxes and decrease the amount of time they have to spend tending to them, email continues to sap a great deal of our attention and energy throughout the course of the workday. As the following infographic illustrates, usage…
