      I really would like to add one new feature to search mail: a "To" filter, in a similar way there is a filter for "From". That would help things

      But the time it takes to tag the messages in the first place isn't worth it for the rare few times that I need to search for something.

      If you have tags, you don't need type all key word everytime you want search message.

      Tags are pointless when you have powerful search abilities. Why tag
      something when I can find it by searching in 3 seconds?




      Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your homepage.

        I recently read an article where the author recommended not using
        folders or tags and that it is easier to just search.
        Which is what many of you are saying.

        I've always been a folders guy, but I may try the search approach.
        Some of my folders have gotten so big that I would have to do searches
        anyway.

        It is interesting learning how people use/organize emails.
        Keep the tips/rants/opions coming!

          the advantage of folders is that it provides a systematic system of taking emails out of your inbox, so that your inbox remains a kind of "to do" list. In addition, if we had sub-folders, then I'm sure it would all become a little more manageable, and each folder may be less overcrowded.

          Also folders help with archiving - i.e. can do one at a time, which is more likely to work and allows you to backup specific topics in your email

                I use descriptive folders such as:  Bills and Finances, Y-Mail List, Personal, Names of people who frequently send me emails (like my bosses).  Then I can always sort them by date or whether they had an attachment, etc., in the folder.

                I wouldn't mind subfolders.

                I hate a "full" in box.  Once an email is read it needs to be filed somewhere.

                I also use the filters to send emails to their proper folders.  Again, keeps the inbox from getting so cluttered.
