Is there a way to limit incoming e-mails?
 
Hi, I'm on medical leave, so 90% of the e-mails I'm getting now don't apply to me. Is there a way to "unsubscribe" to different types of e-mails, so my box doesn't get cluttered with tons of stuff that's useless to me?

Thanks!

One thing you can do
 
Is set up a 'rule' in Groupwise -- it's under Tools, Rule. You can set up a rule to delete incoming email with particular words in the subject or particular senders-- but be careful; if you set it up wrong, you can autodelete stuff you wanted to see! I would not recommend deleting things based on the To line because some campuswide email is still useful even when you aren't on campus.

Thanks so much!
That seems to be helping. I set up a vacation rule, that e-mails back the sender to please remove me from any non-essential e-mails, and just keep sending academic and financial ones.
Appreciate your help!
