Managing your emails - how do you win the email battle?

I previously blogged about Managing Your Inbox for an Easier Life, but I have recently started using a different strategy which seems to be working for me.

I no longer have my inbox permanently open in a tab. I still am aware of every email as it pings into my inbox (my phone beeps) but it means I stay more focused on the job I am working on, rather than immediately going to check what it is.

I now pop into my inbox every 30/60 mins, and I am finding that I am getting more done, as I'm stopping and starting less than before.

How do you manage your inbox?
