Have you been CC’d before on emails that you really should not have been CC’d on the first place? The old way of handling these emails were to simply delete them as they come in. However, in larger email chains there may be 5, 10 email replies or more which quickly adds up in time and lost productivity. A fast and easier way to reduce those emails is to highlight the message in your Outlook inbox and click Ignore on the ribbon. Now if there are more replies to that email conversation, they’ll be automatically deleted before you even see them in your inbox.
Quick Note: You do need at least Office 2010/2013. If you don’t have it installed, we recommend Office 365 which gives you access to the latest Office version (Office 2013). Sign up for a free trial if you’re interested in trying this and other features out!
