One of the really neat features of the newest version of Mail is that you can color-code messages you receive. Even when you move the message from one folder to another, it retains the color-coding that you’ve applied. If you’re the type of person that keeps close to 100 or so messages in the In box, this might just be what you need to help you get organized. Consider the following color-coding options:
· Green--Use to denote messages that contain job or money-making opportunities.
· Red--Use to denote messages that require immediate attention.
· Blue--Use to denote message that pertain to recreational activities, such as your summer vacation or movie recommendations.
· Yellow--Use to denote funny e-mails that make you laugh.
· Purple--Use to denote messages you want to forward.
· Black--Use to denote messages that contain bad news.
To color-code any message, select the message, choose Format>Show Colors, and select a color from the Colors dialog box. (You can also flag a message using Message>Mark>As Flagged.)
