Overview of Tags

Email tagging enables you to color code and label your email messages with multiple IMAP 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.

Email tags are implemented as "IMAP Keywords" and are thus compatible with any IMAP email client, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, that also supports them.

Email tagging in WebMail and entry tagging WebAidesTM are standard features available to all LuxSci users.

What can you do with Email Tags?

Users can:

  • Define any number of tags and associated colors.
  • Easily add and remove tags from one or multiple email messages or WebAideTM entries.
  • Color code messages based on the tags with predetermined colors.
  • View all the tags associated with each message in their email, and with any collaboration tools like contacts, calendars, blogs, etc.
  • Filter by tag and use tags as search criteria.
  • Define tags that display arbitrary text--including Unicode content.
  • Define special tags that display custom text different than the actual tag embedded in their email messages.
  • Sort WebAideTM entries by tag
  • Create custom email filters that cause matched email messages to be tagged with one or more custom tags, when those messages are delivered to your email folder(s).

Administrators can:

  • Define global tags and colors to be made available to all users or users in specific domains.

LuxSci is a very unusual company in the respect that if you ask support for a technical help, NOTHING is ever insurmountable to them. From a 1 to a 10, they are twelve!"
