When triaging your email, you want to fly through an inbox of 1000 very quickly. With the triaging technique, you can process 300 emails an hour. You can enhance that speed with a few more power accelerators.
First, you can minimize extra clicks of the Delete key by auto-deleting meeting responses. Why bother saving anything that doesn’t have comments?
Secondly, in order to triage, most likely you are skimming and reading the email. This means the email is open in full screen. After reading an email in full screen, do you really want to return back to your inbox to only find that you need to open another email? If you find that you are needing to skim emails during your triage, then choose the option to Open the Next Item after moving or deleting.
All these options can be found in Outlook 2010 under File, Options, under the Mail tab.
