Afternoon everyone,

Like everyone, I struggle to keep track of my inbox, and I like an empty inbox.

I have scoured the interwebs, and can not seem to find an answer, and rules don't seem to fit the bill. What I would like to do, is when an item comes in, I would like to be able to Manually assign a category to the e-mail. The e-mail would then automagically drop into a pre-defined folder that matches up with the category.

So when an email comes that has to be address before close of business, I could set categorize it as today, and it would dissapear from my inbox to a folder that I would call Today. I have tried doing this with Tasks, but I still end up with a crowded inbox. Same would be for categories such as Tomorrow, Next Week, Project X, Project Y ...

I welcome all ideas, and look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks!

Thats not possible using Outlook's rules - they only run as mail arrives. There are tools like Auto-Mate that can process mail later. (Link here: http://www.slipstick.com/addins/housekeeping.asp) There are other tools, like clear context and NEO that may also meet your needs. All of these tools offer free trials so you can try.






Another option is Search folders for the categories or custom views that hide or show items based on the category.
