Filter and Color Code Client Emails
Every client email that hits my inbox gets tagged and color coded. I use filters for incoming messages — either using an exact match filter based on the client’s email address, or by using a wildcard filter , like “*@stemlegal”, to capture all emails originating from the client’s domain.
Messages get tagged by client name.
Every client tag has a designated color applied that stands out.
I also filter non-client email messages whenever possible.
It’s the color coding and auto-tagging that keeps my inbox organized. This tip will be ridiculously simple for most readers, but I’ve happily used it for years.
