Outlook rules and alerts are a lifesaver

Have you got any examples of how you apply them?

I started in the same place as you, but eventually found that all the emails you receive with some exceptions say the same thing. 90% of the content I get sent I filter into folders by asset class & bank etc. over a period of about 6 months I found who I respected the opinions of / sufficiently different to my own and only those make it into my main inbox, I did something similar with IB chats, I’d say 75% are muted for notifications

Delete yourself from undesired lists.
Make smart mailboxes and folders to stay organized.
Have alerts for emails that you value most.
