Here's a potentially useful new tool for anyone who finds their email inbox filling up with stuff from companies, not friends. The idea is quite simple: shift the company stuff (newsletters, offers, order confirmations, shipping info) out of the inbox to a separate folder per company. This is what otherinbox.com provides, along with unlimited email addresses that you use to sign up to the different services (for example firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com). It can integrate with gmail, or any other IMAP-accessible email.I've created pretty much the same idea just using my own domain name, where I can make up any email address I like. I route all company emails to a separate address, and then forward them to gmail. Some people call this bacn - a more tasty variant of spam. But if you don't have your own domain name, this could work rather well.
