As an owner of a work Inbox with 800 emails in it (down from 950 this morning - I spent some time cleaning up) - I know the pain.1) Setup separate at least one email account so all the non-essential but nice to have can go there - eg gmail becuase it will process and tag stuff for you. When you sign up or at a site that sends non-important stuff have it sent there so your main email doesn't get clagged by distracting stuff.
