  • E-Mail Tickler?

    I've been contemplating setting up a series of e-mail tickler folders. 1-31 for each day and months.

    Reason is I have a lot of e-mails I need to defer to a later time, or references to a seminar or something. I was printing them out and filing them in my paper based tickler, which does work but wastes a lot of paper even if I print on both sides.

    Has anyone done this and how does it work for you?

    I handle all my tickler file stuff electronically and love it.

    I forward emails to my web app, and can set start and end dates for tasks and projects. Setting the start dates removes the tasks from my next actions list until the right day.

    I get daily email notifications, so that serves as a reminder for me.

    If there's anything paper-based involved, I make a note about where to find it in the task information, rather than keeping it in a specific physical tickler file set-up.

      I use iwantsandy.com as email and electronic tickler.

        Rather than deal with folders I use ClearContext IMS Pro for Outlook (http://www.clearcontext.com/) for this and many other things. If you have an email that you want to defer, just click the Defer button and tell the sofware when you want it back in your Inbox.

        Highly recommended.

          I won't use a web based e-mail app so that won't work for me.

            Does anyone have a solution using Macintosh system with Palm Desktop for the calendar and Eudora for e-mail?

            I've tried the Apple mail and calendar products and they don't do everything I use even though in some ways they are better than my old stuff so for now until it totally dies I'm using what works.
