If you’re like me you get a TON of email, and sometimes the stuff that you haven’t replied to can get missed because it floats down to the bottom of the screen – then off the screen – where I will never scroll down to see just what it is. For some reason I am an organization nut when it comes to my email, and I really like to see JUST my unread messages sometimes. Well, there is a very easy way to do that in Apple Mail.
All you have to do is go to Mailbox>New Smart Mailbox. There is a drop down box under the “contains” text. Select it and select “Message is unreplied”. You can change the name of the Smart mailbox to whatever you want (I chose “Unread Mail”) and BOOM – done.
You can get more complicated with it if you want, and even begin to sort it by person or subject that is unread.
This simple tip, that I should have noticed a long time ago, is really going to make things simple.
Special thanks to Richard Stevens of “Diesel Sweeties” for the tip.
