Thread: Mail question

  1. #1
    Mail question
    I have a few basic questions about Mail. I would like to make some folders to put certain email in and can't seem to figure out how to do that. Is this the "smart folder" feature? If so, I can't figure it out.

    I am also unable to organize my address book. Does it automatically sort alphabetically all of my addresses? If so, their alphabetizing is a little different than I am used to. Some are alphabetized by first name, and others by the last name. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    To add a folder, just click the "+" sign underneath the column of folders.

    "Smart folders" are folders which help you organize things from many different sources. For example, if you get email from your best friend and his girlfriend and their buddy, and you want them all to show up in their own special folder, you could make a "Smart Folder" for that. And because the "Smart Folder" is really just a pointer to the actual emails, you can simultaneously organize the emails in another way (say, each in their own folder).

    Or, you could create a "Smart Folder" that shows you all of the emails you've received with attachments. Lots of options, worth playing with.

    Or, you could create a "Smart Folder" that will contain all of the emails you've received with the word "Mactastic!" in them.

    I cannot comment on the address book issue, mine alphabetizes properly. Perhaps the application you used to add the address mixed up first & last names? Also, some people's email addresses can make it hard for the computer to figure it out automatically. A little editing by hand may be necessary.
