I have an interest and curiosity in how everyone organizes their emails with WFs, archives, respondingto, etc.
I've danced between the most byzantine, complex librarian-like filing system of over 34- yes, THIRTY FOUR! -- archive categories, but have since realized the stupidity in that. I'm not a librarian. It's the modern age. I can use search features to find specific emails I want. A lot of people still use the doznens of archive folders and I can't begin to describe how much clutter that creates even though you first perceive the myriad folders as organizational. more storage folders is counter-productive!
These days after listening to some brilliant merlin mann, stuff, I've got
- Trash, delete, sent, spam, and drafts -- that's it!
Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it.
