  • Well, it's a tough review to write because there are a lot of very good tidbits given on organizing and strategies for organizing and using your email. However, on the bad side, it was mostly focused on the gmail web interface. I know very few people who regularly use or manage their email on a web client. So, I suppose as a tribute to desktop clients, they dedicate the last session to Apple mail. Now Apple desktops have stood for decades at between six and seven percent of computer users and now, statistics show 40% of those users have purchased a copy of Microsoft Office for their Macs and don't use Apple mail anyhow. So IO was very disappointed a more popular email client wasn't selected for the demonstrations and focused a little more on people relying on POP3 email versus web-based or IMAP services which cost extra money if you have email in volume. So, while I wouldn't recommend it, I also wouldn't steer you away if you thought you had the idea you want to organize your email better and get a more streamlined workflow.. Rate it as a C-, 2 out of 5 stars.
  • This class was tremendously helpful! So many great tips.
