Hi,
I remember someone recently had a recommendation as to a software or =
something that would make it easy to download or manage or archive =
emails into easily managed folders??
Does anyone remember this?  I could really use this to speed up getting =
through all my emails.  Between this list, business emails and all the =
spam, I am getting 100 - 150 a day. 
Thanks in advance,
Pat

Pat,
I believe that would be Gmail.  I would be more than glad to send you an
invite if you wish ... just let me know.

I use Eudora. I am able to have folders based on many criteria. 
Thunderbird might be able to do the same, but I've never been able to 
get it to work.
I don't care for the way Gmail does it... Just my opinion.
A+

I believe most email software will allow moving email into custom 
folders. Certainly Outlook Express and Mozilla Thunderbird do. The later 
is my own choice. I created a macro (they call it a filter) which 
automatically checks the "To" and "Reply-To" of an incoming message, and 
if that field contains "homeroast" then move that 
message to the "Coffee" folder.

Assigning mail into categories or folders is different from the task of 
archiving.
I use Thunderbird for my Email client, and, for the most part, use a 
gmail account. The nice thing about gmail is that you don't have to 
delete mail--the archival space is big enough--and the google searching 
ability means that it is easy to find even very old mail, without having 
to use folders at all, for the gmail web interface. You can use 
filters/rules and create labels or folders on gmail's web interface, if 
you wish. I don't.
However, on my desktop, I use message rules to sort my mail into 
folders. I have gmail set as a pop account, and the rules I have 
established filters 99% of my mail into these folders. I delete freely 
when I am done reading mail, because I know that my gmail account has it 
archived on their server.

I use Thunderbird for my email (go to: mozilla.org) - it's such a pain 
to get mail directly at any web site. With Thunderbird, you can easily 
create filters and new mail will automatically go into any folder you 
specify.

Eddie, 
That would be great, please send me the invite.
Also, thanks to all who responded.  You have given me several possible =
ways to deal with the situation, and I may try all of them and see what =
works best for me.

Pat,
Are you looking for a stand-alone package or to you use a browser to check your e-mail?
As a stand-alone e-mail package, I've been using Eudora for years to filter and manage the 200+ e-mails I get everyday.It comes in both a free version and a paid version. (The paid version gets you out of looking at a small advertisement.) There are also spam filters that work with it to filter out even more spam than your ISP is doing.
You can set up nested folders and both individual and group mailing addresses. I have all of my e-mails from this forumcome into one specific folder and I just check it when I have the time. That way it doesn't clutter up my in-box. It also keeps nice statistics, showing, for example, that I've gotten over 76,000 messages this year.

Actually, that most vicious of Internet worm providers, Microsoft, has =
killed my alternate browsers  so often that I gave up and use Outlook =
Express for my e-mail.
The process for sorting into folders is quite flexible and straight =
forward.
1) Create the destination folder(s) by right clicking on the top folder; =
e.g. Local Folders
2) click on 
3) then 
4) decide what you want to do with the message (recognize, move, delete, =
mark as read, etc.) and check the appropriate boxes -- click OK
5) click on each of the criteria and enter the key words or folder names
6) name the rule
7) move it up or down relative to the other rules (if any) -- this =
decides the order of application (if the first rule deletes the incoming =
mail, the second won't get to see it.
6) say OK, or  to be sure it works
Example:
Apply this rule after the message arrives
Where the From line contains 'homeroast' 
    or Where the Subject line contains '+' 
Move it to the coffeeJabber folder 
It works.

Hi Pat, I'm not sure if Eddie got to this yet, so I sent you an  
invite.  Worst case, you can now have two accounts ;)
Personally, I do all my filtering server-side using procmail, but I  
know that isn't an option for most people - works great for me though!

Roger,
Thanks for the great instructions.  I did as you instructed and suddenly =
50 spam emails were deleted completely from my inbox, and all of the =
homeroast list mail went into a folder I created called Coffeetalk. It =
works.
Thanks again to you and all who replied-this list is truly great.

Thanks Jeff,
I appreciate it.

In outlook or firebird something like ....tools/message rules/mail/set =
where subject line contains a + works for me and direct to a SM's folder =
created in local folders and create a sub folder for orders, to keep =
copies of SM orders for reference.

Yup ... he's got two!
Thanks Jeff ... I was changing the oil in the car ...

And, of course, you can very easily do this with Apple's Mail.app too.

Of course - I'm pretty sure it's basically the same. I use a Mac, but 
I've never tried their Mail program. I stay with what I know I like! :)

Right.  I think that just about any mail client will allow filtering.  I 
tried Mail when I first got OS X.  Mail doesn't do newsgroups, and I was 
too lazy to keep switching to a separate program every time I wanted to 
check alt.coffee or one of the others I follow.  I have almost always 
used Thunderbird when on a Windows machine.  Outlook is just so 
painful.  I really wanted to use Opera on both platforms, just because 
it is so obscure, but could never quite get used to the interface.
I am moving in ten days.  If I disappear for awhile, it is just because 
it took more time than I thought to get set up again.  AT&T promises I 
can keep my DSL account, even though I will have no land telephone 
service, but who knows what will happen when I try to actually do it.

Good luck with your move. I'm doing the same at the end of the month - 
ugh, I hate the whole moving process, esp. this time of year!

It's a trial, all right.  I'll be moving (across town) sometime in the
Jan-Mar season, so I'm already sorting and packing and trying to get ahead
of the panic.  (As if.)

Last time I moved was from Arizona back home to Boston. Both moves - to =
and from - were the absolute worst moments of my life. It was totally 
insane.
This time I'm moving just two cities away (towns/cities - or something =
in between) in.... I don't want to know how soon. But I need to sell 
off a lot of stuff before we move - I think the whole apartment would 
fit into one room here... yeah, it's an exaggeration... somewhat.
And it's yet ANOTHER Christmas move! Said I'd NEVER do this again...
