Grimmís (tm) Fairy Mails (14 May 2004)
While labelling/categories/whatever you call it may make finding e-mails easier, it doesn't solve the big issue of having too much e-mail to sift through. GMail takes the approach of "never delete e-mails" which means one big inbox. Give my main dilemma is "should I spend time reading this e-mail", that approach could make it much more difficult. To handle this load, I currently have rules so that certain mailing lists are automatically filed in other areas. That way, I know which mails I can get away with not reading.
