How To Create Folders in Gmail

Creating folders in Gmail is the best way to organize all your emails.  Folders allow you to put email messages in to a collection that you can save for later.  It can also be a great way to filter out junk mail, spam, and those not so high priority alerts.If you are receiving more mail then you can possibly handle then you should start creating folders so important email messages don’t get lost.

In addition to creating folders you should create automated email filters which will remove emails from senders you know are spam so they don’t clutter up your inbox.  To see that tutorial visit: Create Filters in Gmail
