The initial meaning behind “inbox zero” is because of the brainpower or mental capacity you use towards your e-mail is very minimal. It could mean you have zero e-mails in your inbox, but overall it means you spend less time in your inbox.
Inbox zero was first made popular by Merlin Mann in 2007 during a Google Tech Talk.
