Get rid of email prompts – and keep working 22 Aug 2018

We’ve talked in the past about emails distracting you from your important business. There’s always the temptation to check an email as soon as it lands.

However, it’s a better habit to check emails, and respond if necessary, at regular intervals that suit your work flow – perhaps every hour or two hours.

Most email programs, however, automatically prompt you when an email comes in.

It’s distracting, so turn off the prompts (or shut down the email program until you’re ready).

To turn off prompts in Outlook (the most common email program), go to File > Options > Mail > Message Arrival.

The four boxes will be ticked, so just untick them.
