Email Message Tagging and Color Coding in WebMail

Saturday, June 16th, 2007

Email tagging enables you to color code and label your email messages with multiple keywords. This process helps you to both sort your messages into categories and to visually identify particular types of messages by color. This new and more visual system simplifies management of your email, especially if you are sharing your folder with others via IMAP or WebMail.
