Inbox Pause


My favorite email extension! Boomerang allows you to pause your inbox and only see new emails when you are in processing mode. Set up specific emails or domains to always come through and never get paused. Great for those top-tier clients or contracts you're waiting for. You can also schedule emails to send later, snooze them to pop back up at a later date and see how likely you are to get a response.
