SMART MAILBOX IDEA #2: MAIL FROM YOUR BOSS

This is just a good idea aimed at increasing your job security. First, click on an email message from your boss, then create a new Smart Mailbox (as shown in the previous tip). By default, the first field will be set to From, the second field will be set to Contains, and in the third field your boss's email address will already be there. Just click OK, then remember to check this Smart Mailbox several times a day to make sure your boss's message doesn't get lost in the flood of spam that comes your way. This wouldn't be a bad idea for messages from your spouse either. Last week my wife emailed me a Hallmark card and I missed it because it went straight into my Junk folder as Mail thought it was spam. Had I had that Smart Mailbox, I would have spotted it, and sidestepped a potentially life-threatening situation. (Note: You could also create a Smart Mailbox for just email from your co-workers—just click the plus [+] sign button after your enter the first co-worker's email address, then add their addresses one by one until they're all in the same Smart Mailbox.)
