Most everyone is focusing on figuring out how to easily identify emails that are WF. No one has really talked about how to purge this file easily. Using OmniFocus I can capture any email as a ToDo and categorize it as WF. But 70% of the emails I send (40-50 per day at least), require a response (so I'm "WF" a response). But the vast majority of those get responded to quickly. If I'm creating 40-50 WF "to do's" each day, that seems unproductive especially when I also need to go back in and delete everything that I received back.
I'm wondering if it might be more productive to scan my sent mail at the end of every day and see if there are emails sent that I'm still waiting on a response for. At that point I create a WF action. Anyone do anything like that? See any potential pitfalls?
Another question... I use Mail on my Mac. Is there anyway to tag an email in a way that only I can see the tag (kind of like flagging an email that only I can see)?
