Quickie Tip!

When you are organizing emails, be sure to set your in-box up with a Sent folder (your email program may automatically do so). Regularly sort through the contents of Sent Items and file emails. Yes, they are from you, but often you need a record of what you've said, when you emailed, etc. Plus, if you are replying to an email, Sent Items have the history of the back-and-forth dialogue. The most recent response (which included the original emails and subsequent exchanges) trumps all the other related emails; therefore you can delete anything prior and keep the folder organized.

The goal is to keep the Sent, Drafts, and Inbox folders empty by either handling or filing the emails located within. It's cleaner, more organized, and uses less memory.
