I'm a teacher and also provide all the IT support for my school. As such, I'm part of a few "groups" in my school district's Outlook. I get all the emails sent to the IT group, my grade-level group, my specific school group, my subject group, etc.

 

That's a lot of email, right?

 

Well...80% of the emails are from one person. They share EVERY interesting blog, tech tool, teacher hack, etc they come across (and I think they belong to every technology and teaching based list-serv known to man).

 

Is there ANY way to mute this person? I know how to mute conversations/threads, but this person starts a new conversation about whatever new crap they found every ten minutes. 

 

I can't mute Outlook notifications because I need to be able to respond to tech drama at a moment's notice, but I'm sick of the constant *ding* *ding* *ding* *ding* of every flippin' email this lady sends out. And I can't block this person because...blah blah blah unprofessional...blah blah blah...team player. *grumble*

 

I'd complain to higher ups, but people seem to LIKE her turning everyone's email into her personal Pinterest...

 

Help???
