Now that you have created folders in the previous tutorial, you can use email filters to sort incoming emails directly into the corresponding folder. Let's take for example, you have an e-shop and it delivers emails with the subject "New Order." You can set up a folder called "New Orders" and have the emails go directly to that folder. Instead of having to sort through the emails everyday to find new orders you would then just have to go to the appropriate folder where the email filter directs it to.
Here are some articles to help you set up email filters in the most popular email clients:
- Creating an Email Filter in Webmail (i.e. squirrelmail)
- Creating an Email Filter in Outlook
- Creating an Email Filter in Thunderbird
