Is inbox management that big of a problem? No, but Gmail is trying to solve it anyway. They just launched a redesign.
Is inbox management really as much of a problem as email providers seem to make it out to be? I get between 50 and 100 daily emails on the reg, and I don't find myself struggling for a better way to manage them. Outlook just relaunched with a promise of a cleaner, easier to care for inbox, so naturally Gmail announced yesterday an inbox redesign with similar goals.
