If you’re a person who gets so caught up in their email inbox that it’s overwhelming, then I have a great suggestion for you: separate email. There is no need to continue to check your email, even though you know it’s there. Try to take a break from your phone and get a few minutes away from your inbox.
I know it sounds like a weird idea, but I know my best friends and their spouses love emailing to each other.
Separate email is not a new thing. I use separate email in my day job. But the point is you can do it in your personal life. It doesnt have to be on an email client. I use separate email in my personal life mostly because I just like to put my email on a different computer and work on it with my headphones on. It makes it less of a distraction. It also lets me get back to my other work much faster.
I think it’s possible to do this on multiple computers, if you want to. In my personal life I have my own computer, I have my own phone, I have my email, I put my email on my phone, my Skype, and my phone has a bunch of other things. When I’m not working, I can probably do it on the iPhone. I can do it on my laptop in the cloud.
I can definitely do this. I do it all the time. I like to do it with headphones on. I like to do it with a headset. I use them when I travel. I can do it with a microphone.
In a previous post, we talked about how to do this on multiple computers, but we’re not talking about multiple computers on one computer.
I did that a while back when I shared some of my own setup. So I thought I could write a post like that one, to put together some of the tips and tricks I have learned over the years. As a bonus, I thought I would also write about my favorite setup to do this in: a Mac Pro.
Here’s how to do it on a Mac.
You’ll notice that on my computer, I have a separate email account for each of my three accounts. This is because I use them for sending newsletters, my online diary, and to send out multiple emails that have a single subject.
This is a really cool setup to create. You want to keep your email address as the email address of each of your email accounts. You already have a home directory in your home directory. As you can see, I have a separate email folder in the home directory.
