So, my inbox has 294 messages in it right now. When it gets to around 500 or so I usually go on a crusade to bring it to under 100. This involves throwing messages into folders and deleting lots and lots of no longer important ones that I won’t need.
So, this concept of not using folders to organize email is intriguing to me. I do this already within the folders, like if I’m only looking for messages from an individual, or sometimes I’ll do a subject or body search within folders if I have a sense of what I’m looking for. Why wouldn’t I just do that all the time, in one huge inbox?
