At the moment I do not like the way Outlook helps you organise emails.

For example rules and moving to a folder for me is not a solution since you can easily miss something and even if you check lists of unread email.

My solution is to leave not processed email in the INBOX and once processed I file it.

Following are what would help me a lot (perhaps something already exists)

(1) on each email, near reply, reply all, forward, IM, there should be a button FILE which takes from a list of rules (either the rules in the system which are marked not to work automatic) or new rules.

(2) link 2 conversations in 1 (for now I found a VBA workaround from http://www.vboffice.net/en/developers/send-emails-automatically7) but which ideally should be an integral part of outlook

......

alternatively I think Email is a really old technology which protocol should be re-written from start by the BIG ones to integrate ticket-like features, IMs, etc into one modern new protocol. There are times where you start with an email and continue on Skype ... then you loose lot of history/information/links.

The loss of history is one reason why email isn't going anywhere... Skype/Lync/ other IM is 'right now' and generally short. Yammer (Facebook for companies :)) is a little better but it's really easy to lose stuff in the yammer threads.

Outlook has a Move to folder command and there are quick steps that are basically rules you can run at any time.

I know there is 'move' but you have to select it for every email (or there is the last few selected)

Is there a way that the system suggests where to move and if you agree you just click a button?
