Read Later

"Read Later" is a dedicated folder that Clean Email creates in your mailbox for messages that you do not want to clutter your Inbox, but you may still want to read later. Read Later is excellent for interesting newsletters you read once a week but would rather keep elsewhere. Clean Email can send you a digest on your schedule showing all messages moved to Read Later.

You can move messages to the Read Later folder manually, or instruct Clean Email to deliver certain messages (e.g., messages from a particular sender) to that folder automatically.

Delivering Messages to Read Later

To instruct Clean Email to deliver future messages from a particular sender to the Read Later folder rather than your Inbox, click the drop-down next to the Settings button for the message group and select Deliver to Read Later.
