EmailSortingIdeas :

I use a queue. Off my inbox folder I have:

- Action
- Completed
- Defer
- Delegate
- Reference
- Someday

Action Folder – Basically as email comes in that I need to deal with I'll pop it into the action folder. This is used so that when I have free time I and view what items need my attention. You could further sort this by deadline, priority, etc. Just takes extra time to sort it.

Completed Folder – Used as a reference for my completed action emails.

Defer, Deletgate, Reference, and Someday Folder – You get the idea
