Etacts keeps your email under control

As someone with over 200 unread emails in her work email inbox (what’s that sound? oh it’s a GTD person fainting), Etacts is something I could definitely use.

Basically, Etacts works to remind you that you haven’t responded to emails. I applied it to my gmail account just now and immediately saw I haven’t emailed someone in over a year. I’m a horrible, horrible person.  So horrible that I chose to update this blog rather than email back. What’s another day? (Horrible!)

Etacts’ concept sounds simple enough, but if you’re a multitasker who continually feels the inbox is out of control, this could be a handy tool. If you’re a GTD follower or someone who likes passive aggressive email topics, this site will also remind you of who hasn’t responded to YOUR emails (i.e. I’ve been waiting for a response to my email for 23 days!). There’s also a good looking plug in for your gmail account that appears to work a lot like xobni.

It’s definitely a project that has potential to grow – hopefully into Microsoft Office Outlook so I can use it at work. Yes, it’s all about me, me, me.
