One use of filters I have is to make sure emails from VIPs are always seen (by starring them), because I’ve accidentally glossed over important emails in the past during triage-100-emails-in-10-minutes sessions

What’s your suggestion in this case. Do I have too many emails? Or are these issues inevitable and I should just chalk them as “let small bad things happen” http://fourhourworkweek.com/2007/10/25/weapons-of-mass-distractions-and-the-art-of-letting-bad-things-happen/

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
