Boomerang: An Inbox Manager for Gmail
Since I've started my new job, my email has spiraled out of control. Sometimes I get over 200 messages in a single day and it can be difficult to keep track of everything. For my personal and social media email, I use Gmail. However, sometimes it is difficult to keep track of emails that I want to follow up on and emails that I've sent. I just found Boomerang for Gmail, and it's awesome. You can install it as an extension in either Firefox or Chrome and it is great. You can schedule messages to be sent at a later time AND you can have messages pop back into your inbox if you don't get a response. Also, you can have messages that are important be resent to you at an optimal time. For someone who is trying to make sense of many dates, meetings, and projects, this can really help. It's free and helpful.
