      > Uh labels aren't quite folders.  I often use search in Gmail to find messages.  Tagging those messages with labels doesn't remove them from the inbox, so as I traverse the inbox I must find those labeled messages and manually put them in the 'quasi-label folder'.  More annoying is that POP3 collects all messages including those in the quasi folders.  Within Yahoo, folders hide messages from POP3 (but not IMAP) and when I search and move messages to folders they are gone from the inbox.

      > Btw, Gmail does have a folders option, but they're called "labels" instead. You can create labels and sub-labels via the "settings" tab, and drag the relevant messages into each one. I also have preferred Yahoo, but as I have dozens of saved messages missing from folders due to their "issue" listed above, I may have to move over to Gmail.
