Chapter 20. Emailing with Thunderbird > Organize Incoming Mail

161. Organize Incoming Mail

✓ BEFORE YOU BEGIN

154 Get Your Email


You won't have Thunderbird up and running for very long before you start pondering the universal problem of managing all that mail. In 155 Find a Message, you learned to sort your mail and to search for a particular message. In 160 Handle Junk Mail, you learned how to enable Thunderbird's automatic junk mail handler to manage most if not all of your incoming junk mail. Still, what should you do with messages from your department head, email from your kid's teachers, personal email from friends and family, and so on? One way to tackle the problem is to delete email after you've read it, unless you're sure you'll need to refer to it again. Messages you keep can then be organized into special folders. You can even set up filters that handle some of this organizing for you automatically. For example, you can have emails from Uncle Bill and Aunt Judith automatically routed into the Family folder.
