Recently, email is one way of communicating fast online. Even in Japan, students send email with cell phone almost in the same frequency as SMS (text message). If you’re one of this modernization’s “victims”, and you don’t want your cell phone or desktop devices continuously received email when you were busy, then you can use Inbox Pause.

In brief, everytime you received a message, then the message sender will receive an automatic answer which informed to him that the incoming message to you couldn’t be read right now because you were busy. You can pause your email anytime via extension button which is integrated to Gmail interface.
After you installed add-on or extension for your browser, then each time you open your Gmail account, then you’ll receive additional button on “Gmail” side, which is “Pause” button. By click on this button, you can stop the incoming email to your account temporarily.
After pressing pause button, you need to give permission to Inbox Pause to pause emails which previously sent into your Gmail account. You can also set outcome messages. Inbox pause will provide a message template you can change as you like. Actually you don’t have to set auto responder or direct reply.
