DelJo63 has some great tips to help in time management and to manage your inbox:

  • Don’t check all of your emails as they come in
  • You don’t have to answer them all immediately
  • Create multiple sections or folders in your inbox
  • Use filters, rules, and labels
  • Make templates
  • Unsubscribe
  • Mute group emails you don’t need
  • Don’t make your inbox your to-do list

Btw: almost every email system (not just gmail) supports these features in one way or another
