You know the drill during the morning email sort: three more come in while you frantically reply to one. It’s ratios like that that will keep your nose in your inbox, far away from the real work, all day. It’s a cycle all too many of us can’t seem to break free from, but Tony Hsieh figured out a solution that’s working for him. It’s called Yesterbox, and he’s far from the only one adopting the “email ninja strategy,” as @AprilRinne called the practice.
The solution is simple: any email you receive today goes untouched until tomorrow. Today, you are only working on emails that came in yesterday. Yesterday’s inbox = Yesterdaybox.
Especially for those who treat their inbox like a to-do list, like Hseih does, it’s a way to get off the “never-ending treadmill” while still attending to every item that needs attention without feeling totally overwhelmed by the process.
Evomail is built to support the Yesterbox practice. Snooze is one of our most popular features and will help you master the idea of Yesterbox. As new emails come in today, simply snooze them to return tomorrow; that way you don’t have to stare at a swelling number on your badge count. And when you sit down to tackle your inbox in the morning, yesterday’s mail will be waiting. …Continue Reading…

Nothing else? Not right this minute. Remember, we’re a small team with big plans and big ideas.

IN THE NEWS
We’re terribly good-looking, so says Cam Bunton at TodaysiPhone. Evomail+ was included in a round-up of the best email apps. It’s good competition like that that keeps us all honest and hustling. …Continue Reading…
12. Aviation Industry
As the Air Capital of the World, Wichita is home to aviation leaders Cessna, Learjet, and Hawker Beechcraft. These companies all have headquarters in Wichita, providing thousands of jobs for the area. We long held the distinction of taking care of Air Force One, and Harrison Ford is often seen dining at Connie’s Mexico Cafe while his Cessna undergoes maintenance.
11. Everybody Knows Your Name
Before making her way to Cheers, Kirstie Alley made her childhood in Wichita. Today, the actress still calls our historical College Hill neighborhood home. Other famous faces who once had a 672-ZIP code include Don Johnson, Jeff Probst, and Joe Walsh.
10. Low Cost of Living
Wichita’s cost of living remains stable and affordable, falling around 9% below the national urban area average. Median home prices here are about $125,000 and we spend $3.49 per gallon of gas.
9. No Traffic
How about a 3.3-minute average commute? While many large cities suffer with overwhelming traffic—a major stressor and rising cause of anxiety — Wichitans enjoy a mostly stress-free, traffic-free life. In fact, our Brandi Koskie says it takes only one Justin Timberlake song to get to work.
8. The Nifty Nuthouse
Imagine all of your favorite candies, nuts and snacks from current faves to vintage craves all available in one giant warehouse. That’s The Nifty Nuthouse, and it has something for everyone — from wasabi peas to the world’s best chocolate covered gummy bears and double-dipped dark chocolate malt balls. Seriously. …Continue Reading…
There has always been more to our vision at Evomail than solely being a consumer-facing, app-store-only venture. That bigger goal is coming to fruition, as we recently shared the finalization of our first enterprise client.
As the Wichita Business Journal first reported last week, the licensing contract is in place with a search engine (yet to be publicly named). Evomail will provide the front- and back-end support for what will be a branded email solution in a deal worth $280,000 per year.
This new income source for Evomail, coupled with a fresh $500,000 fund raising round, will give the company capital needed to further develop its consumer app, hire more talent, and ultimately grow the business. A fremium model, or paid premium version of Evomail, is still on the map for the first-half of 2014. …Continue Reading…
Is voicemail a dying form of communication? That was the question asked by Nancy Redd during today’s HuffPost Live. She invited our Brandi Koskie to join a conversation discussing the downfall and merits of the “tedious” medium, as Brandi described.
Other experts on the panel were Jacqueline Whitmore who addressed etiquette concerns with voicemail, Sara Callahan who defended Millenial usage, and Tom Boellstorff who, as a digital anthropologist, made sense of how technologies grow and build on one another but don’t necessarily die. …Continue Reading…
