I started marking my messages “unread”, or star them and stash them in the
starred folder. That’s just me, though - observe your own mind, and you’ll
be endlessly entertained.

gmailzero’s sting? :slight_smile:

Hah! I actually have a bad habit of not even touching things that look
onerous, so I’ve started doing the opposite and once I get on the road
for today, I go through and mark a bunch of other things as read
just to put myself on the hook for tomorrow.

I also noticed that urge to use “mark as unread”, but instead opted for
followup.cc. Disadvatage - they eventually will show up :slight_smile:
I am happy gmailzero helped me to see how often I kept emails as reminders.

I have carried over my pre gmail habits of archiving all posts to folders,
my gmail solution for this is to label every post (a lot labelled by
filters). So gmailzero for me is no unlabelled mail and zero tagged to do (I
use active inbox - http://www.activeinboxhq.com). What’s the "official"
definition?

official definition for gmailzero is no Read messages in your inbox.
ie, Unread messages don’t count against you since you don’t have
control over those.
i often accumulate Unread messages because of that loophole but i
periodically make my One Must-Do task be to mark everything in my
inbox as Read.

Good one, the key to clearing my confusion is a line form the first link -
“GmailZero only works for people who (try to) diligently archive
messages.”. So as well as marking things as read daily you also archive
them.

I believer labelling is another form of archiving. Could the check be
configured to check for no read unlabelled messages?
