The Secret to Keeping the junk out of your Sent folder

Quick Tip:   This will help keep the junk out of your sent folder and keep your mail file smaller.

Step 1:  Create a folder called “Delete Later” (or just use the Junk folder).
Step 2:  ALWAYS use Send and File instead of Send.  If the message is important, it should be filed into the appropriate folder.  If it is not, then file it in the “Delete Later” folder.
Step 3.  Whenever you get a quota warning, start by deleting all the messages in the Delete Later folder.

If I had it my way, the option to send without filing a message would not even exist.  I preach this method to my users and have seen some users trash 1/4 to 1/3 of all their sent mail using this method.  That’s a huge savings of space and clutter.

If you liked this tip, please rate it and spread the word.  If you didn’t, please keep it a secret.
