Opening our business (and personal) email inboxes often feels like opening Pandora’s box. The dozens (hundreds?) of important but unanswered, deadlined, or unread messages turn into evil threatening monsters, that we have to face sooner or later. Whether in 2 hours, 2 days, 2 weeks, or in 2 months, but they have to be dealt with.
But how to lose the human factor and remember replying each one on time? There is an easier and more effective way of that than keeping a to-do-list so lengthy it would take as long to read it as to reply those messages (provided you do not forget to check the list). FollowUpThen offers a highly efficient way to keep your weighty messages attended to, by sending you email reminders. And you get unlimited email followups for free.
PwnedList is a free web tool that allows you to check if your online accounts have been compromised by hackers. The service has built the largest database of stolen credentials by indexing the locations where hackers post stolen data. All you have to do is enter your e-mail address and see if it’s on the list of hacked accounts.
There are many ways in which your email and password can be hacked. For example your company’s servers can be breached, or you may get a malicious piece of software that starts sneaking around on your computer. Along with security measures like choosing a strong password and changing it often, keeping your system and antivirus up to date and not using insecure computers or Internet connections to check your accounts, a service like PwnedList can bring you more peace of mind.
There are a lot of places on the Internet that ask you for an e-mail address. A lot of websites require registration in order to let you access their best areas, their files or free downloads. Entering your own e-mail address may open the door to receiving countless of unwanted email messages in the future.
So if you are sure you won’t need future notifications or communication with a website or service, and only want to quickly register and receive the first few messages, use a disposable email service like 10 Minute Mail.
