Cre­ate Smart Mail­boxes

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

Smart Mail­boxes are mail­boxes for which you de­fine spe­cific cri­te­ria, and which Mail fills with match­ing mes­sages with­out mov­ing them from their orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion. Es­sen­tially, they’re saved searches you only need to set up once. Rules for in­clu­sion can be time-based; you might make a Smart Mail­box for mes­sages re­ceived in the last week, or for older, unat­tended in­box items.

The VIPs fea­ture is help­ful for iden­ti­fy­ing mes­sages from im­por­tant peo­ple. How­ever, try com­bin­ing “Sender is VIP” and “Mes­sage is un­read” rules. That will give you a smart mail­box with mes­sages you haven’t even looked at from senders you con­sider to be vi­tal con­tacts. Smart Mail­boxes, like reg­u­lar ones, can be added to the Fa­vorites bar for quick ac­cess – drag one from the side­bar onto it.
