Let Inky do the heavy lifting when it comes to organizing your inbox. No more worrying about how to create the right filter, editing complicated rules, or manually dragging stuff into folders. Inky takes the concept of tagging you're already familiar with in social media and photo sharing, and brings it to your your inbox.
How Do Tags Work?
Inky knows how to tag many messages automatically without any input from you. Sometimes this is based on the sender (aka the email address in the From field), and sometimes it is based on the contents of a specific message. You can also create your own tags and assign them to senders or individual messages.
Example Sender Tags
Inky figures out people that are important to you by examining your outgoing sent mail. Any messages you receive from them are tagged #contact (and as a result appear in the Personal mailbox).
Popular social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn are tagged #social so you can keep these kind of notifications separate from the rest of your mail.
Example Message Tags
#pdf, #doc, #ppt, #xls, #presentation, #spreadsheet
Messages are tagged based on their file attachments.
A message gets these tags if it has an unsubscribe link or other features that look like commercial or promotional mail.
Messages sent from yourself and only to yourself are tagged #note.
You can easily introduce and assign a new tag: just type it into Inky's tag editor above a message displayed in the preview pane. Or teach Inky to automatically assign certain tags to all messages from a sender by tapping the sender's name above the subject of a message in the preview pane. It's incredibly easy, and once you get started using it, you'll never know how you lived without it.
Here are some ideas for additional tags that you might find useful. Once you've tagged some senders and messages, you can make the most of tags by setting up custom mailboxes.
Sender Tag Ideas
Tag the email addresses of family members to keep family matters separate from your professional life.
Tag colleagues and coworkers so you never miss an important interoffice memo.
Tag your financial institutions so legitimate account updates stand out from other spam or phishing scams.
Tag your child's teacher or school district email addresses to setup a mailbox of school business.
Message Tag Ideas
Tag messages describing tasks so you can easily find them later. Remove the tag after you've completed the task.
Tag messages that require a response so you don't forget to reply.
Tag hotel, flight, and car rental confirmations so you can easily track them down while you're on the road.
Tag bill notifications when they arrive. Remove the tag after you've paid the bill.
