How to write good titles for the “subject” of your email
With the growing need to search for emails (my email archive for the past 12 years is over 10gigs and growing exponentially), it is essential that we all start to use the subject headings in emails as descriptive fields that will describe the content we are using in a “cool” and long term understandable way.
I’ve started using tags in the titles to help make things more finadable prior to archiving. I’ve also started just copying and pasting the contact details of people right into the subject line of emails with the tag “vcard” so I can easily search and find them later on.
I’d like to know other bits of advice people are deploying so that email is as quick and simple to archive (without having to take my hands off the keyboard to use the mouse aka drag and drop into folders)?
