Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating inbox folders, part of Outlook 2013: Efficient Email Management.
- For most of us at any specific point in time…our Inbox has at least two different types of things in it.…Messages that you have already read and you've dealt with,…they're all done but you don't want to delete them,…and then messages that your not yet done with.…Perhaps they're unread or perhaps you've read them…but you need to keep them around…until you take action on them.…So one strategy for handling messages in your Inbox…is simply to separate those two things…to be able to say well the items that I've…already dealt with I want to put those somewhere…and not have them hanging around in my Inbox.…
I think the simplest system that I've ever seen…for somebody who was organizing their Inbox…is a friend of mine, Mike, who works in IT,…and he spends a lot of time helping students…at the college where he works,…and so he'll get a request to set up an email account…or to do something specific with some software,…and he has simply two folders in his Inbox that he created.…One is called To do,…and that's where Mike drags everything…
