How many email addresses do you maintain? Do you have an account you use just for bills or an account for getting junk mail? Sometimes we create email addresses for other things such as a blog, church, or work just to keep our lives separated into topics. The problem is keeping up with them all, especially remembering passwords. Rather than trying to segment everything, set up topic folders for incoming email. You can direct emails by key words in the subject line or in the text of the email.
You can also set it up for specific senders. For example, if you want to keep all your email updates for Practips in one place, simply set up an inbox rule that specifies that all email be filed under the folder entitled "Practips". Google, Yahoo, and other email providers have step-by-step instructions to help you set up inbox rules. It's a great way to keep your email organized without having to set up multiple email accounts.
