Email Sorting Program?

This might sound a little different, but I was thinking about this and wondered if there was such a thing.

At my primary email address, I am starting to get a lot of messages daily. Some of them I just want to mark as spam, but at times I actually read them. Anyways, it's getting to be somewhat of a hassle sorting through all my mail on a daily basis.

So what I thought would be useful would be a program that basically allows you to sort your new emails into separate folders or inboxes. Let's say I can set a certain address, or key value criteria for each different box or folder, and then the corresponding mail would be separated and stored in the different locations.

For instance, I could have one box that says "NRA" for all of the NRA stories that come in email form, and another box for "store specials".

Another idea would even be an automatic forwarding criteria where I could set the program to look for an email containing certain wording that I am waiting on, and when it comes, it would automatically be forwarded to my other email. This keeps the secondary email safer against being handed out to who knows where, but still gets the important stuff sent there through my own account.

What do you guys think? Ever seen anything like this?

Yes, it's called Outlook.

You've never heard of Rules and Alerts?

^^ Ditto.

Any decent email client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) should have the capability to create Rules/Filters and sort your email according to specific criteria (subject line, sender address) and move it/forward it accordingly.

Woah, this is crazy basic for an email client (no question's a dumb question, well, nearly none).

Any of the above will work fine. Opera works for me.

How do you read your email at the moment, webmail? (You won't go back.) Although, if you're talking about a program to sort email, sounds like you have your mail stored locally already...

I know, I know. It probably sounds stupid for someone who uses such a thing daily, but with me coming from webmail my whole life (Yahoo, Gmail), and never using Outlook, I didn't know it could do something like this with rules.

I've used Outlook, but it was setting up a couple of other peoples' accounts years ago around 2007, and I always thought it was "stupid" to use. I asked myself, "why would anyone want to use a program to view their email, when they can just do it through a web browser?".

I was apparently trying to judge a book by its cover, because I hadn't really used it much besides getting other people setup with it on very few occasions.

One of the main reasons I was bugged by Outlook was because I had a ton of trouble getting it setup one day. I remember a guy that wanted me to get it working with his Yahoo mail, so I was on the net searching all over for "Yahoo mail SMTP server settings" and etc etc, and I could never get Outlook to work with his Yahoo account. I don't know if it was a problem with Yahoo or what, but it was like I could not just go somewhere to find the specific SMTP or POP settings given straightforward on a Yahoo page; every search I would do would end with me in a forum somewhere from 3 years earlier with someone posting the SMTP settings that were always different from the previous advice, and they each never worked. I was frustrated with it. My email address that gets the most mail currently is a Yahoo mail address, too. (My secondary address that I use for more important stuff and don't give out as much is a GMail address, though.)

So, is one just plain old better than the rest--Outlook, Opera, Thunderbird etc? I would be willing to bet Thunderbird, being made by Mozilla.

Can they work with a standard Yahoo address?

As far as the email delivery system, incoming mail goes to a certain server, and outgoing mail travels to a different server? So there are SMTP and POP servers?

In some countries at least, using yahoo with POP/IMAP (I recommend the latter) requires a paid account. I saw this recently with a friend and was disappointed.

You are right. Even in my email, I have received a lot of emails a day to the extent that I felt tired deleting them. Now, I just leave them as is. I dont want to update them any longer..been lazy to do.
