Yes.I have worked in outlook most of my career. I’m in google mail and I do essentially the same thing. One other think I didn’t mention is that you should manually file most of your emails into only a few buckets and leave the ones in your inbox until you complete them.

My outlook boxes are simple:

PERSONAL-buddies that still send things to my work email.
NEWSLETTERS-which I make automatic

COMPANY or COLLEAGUES- all your colleagues email goes here.


USEFUL EMAILS-This is where most emails go. You can still sort or search them.

I used to have 20 or so folders, but searching got pretty good over the years, so I reduced it.

Hope this helps!
