A reader wants some help with an email cleanup – “Once again I am in the process of cleaning out my inbox, how does an email hugger get back to their very first email?”

It’s pretty easy. Just open your mailbox and look to the far right.

The click on the arrow next to Filter.


Chose Sort by and then select Date.


If you see the most recent first, click Date again to see the oldest.

You’ll now have the oldest email first.


Don’t forget about the Sweep feature.  Access that by choosing a message selecting Sweep at the top of the inbox.


You can set up rules to automatically clear out messages as they come in and to clean up messages from one sender with a click.

Time to begin that cleanup.
