Thanks once again to the lovely Barbara Stapleton for this great little handout on working with flags in Microsoft Outlook. Show some love if you like this and it was of benefit, and at least leave a small comment! Read it here…. Flagging Messages in Outlook.
If you are like me, and loathe to simply delete old emails – you know – ‘in case’ you might need them later then why not try this: my solution is that every other month or so (or when the Inbox looks full and annoying), I create a new folder and call it ‘old stuff – insert relevant date) and then drag the contents of my Inbox over there. This gives me a lovely, fresh, pristine Inbox without immediately deleting all the emails – and nothing beats that empty Inbox feeling!!
In around a month or two I will check back on that folder and if I haven’t touched anything there (because it wasn’t really that important), then I simply delete emails with gay abandon. Try it….you might like it 🙂
