And, if there’s one thing I hate worse than the Red Sox vs. the Cards in a World Series it’s email. Yep. Email is the killer app of the internet age. It’s killing me. Here’s a way to handle email the way Mac power users handle email.
It’s The Keyboard, Stupid
If ever there was a necessary evil in the information age, it’s email. There’s too much email. And too much of email is worthless anyway. What to do?
Mac power users have a handful of Mail apps and plugins at their disposal which make quicker work of the frustration inherent in email management.
Enter MsgFiler, a relatively simply app for Mail which makes it easier and faster to walk through your inbox and file messages into the proper folder.
MsgFiler is keyboard based and not point and click. Why? Because the keyboard is the secret to being a Mac power user.
Keep your hands moving and the messages get dropped into a mailbox folder with ease instead of point and click and then drag and drop.
This is true power that’s truly easy to setup and use on your Mac.
Select a message from Mail’s inbox. Use the keyboard combos to open a pop-up window of all your Mail mailbox folders, select the one to send the message to, and, well, done.
MsgFiler can move or copy messages using just the keyboard. It automatically gives you fast access to the most recent mailbox folders or favorites.
This is not a one-trick pony utility, either. MsgFiler also creates new mailbox folders on the fly so you won’t have to interrupt your workflow. It takes some getting used to to focus only on using the keyboard but the rewards are saved time, less stress.
Here’s the only negative. MsgFiler is Mac App Store only and there is no trial version to test out first.
