March MADness: Email Scheduling Hell vs. Email Autonotification Hell image

Welcome to today’s March MADness head-to-head. Email overload is easily one of the most common frustrations people have at work. No matter what, it always seems that there are just too many. Some of the worst offenders for flooding inboxes and keeping you in email purgatory are scheduled emails and autonotification emails. Which is worse?

To make matters worse, they’re marginally different from one email to the next.

Autonotification Email Hell
