I guess also it’s a bit easier for me as I run my own exchange email server from home (I have sbs2003 installed on one of my home servers), so for 5 years I have had access to outlook web access, push email synch with my cell phone, sharepoint 2003 etc etc – so I’m kind of spoiled that way and appreciate not everyone wants to shell out the license fees for that kind of setup for their personal email.

I guess because people who use email for their livelihood like me needs to be able to drag emails to various folders.

Eg; I have emails from Rich stored in about 3 or 4 various folders – some he posted to this list some directly, depending on what he was saying or how it may relate to a project I'm working on.

Now you might just say – label the email "Rich" and have it sort into a quasi folder….er that wont work because there is a folder about facebook apps that I need one of those emails to go into or NY Angel Groups that I need another one of his emails to go into.


You could always give such mail two or more different labels, and you'd still be able to have access to each one in the differing contexts.

I'm sure gmail will get their eventually and I'm glad it's working for you just don't be so dismissive if some of us want to stick with Outlook for a little bit longer J


Oh, by no means was my intent to be dismissive about what email client you like to use...we all have our preferences, after all, and we like what we like. If you happen to like Outlook, hey, go for it, dude, I ain't gonna stop ya! :) If you really do want the "drag emails to various folders" functionality, you could always use the Web 2.0 version of Yahoo! Mail I guess! :)
