Thanks, useful.

But actually categories are limitate and NOT a practical tool (imagine case of email of multiple colours--> rainbow mails :-(( )


A REAL tagging system would be the definitive solution for all us.

for example: --> in exchange online the office Manager TAG/assign email to a single/group of employees. They develop it. The roles are clear. The responsabilities are clear. No headache. workflow linear and trackable.

Also applicable in case of shared mailbox.


PRO: no sharepoint, very easy to use, integrated in outlook, USEFUL !!




Agreed! We seriously need a full fledge tagging system. Categories are great but very limited. Please implement a real tagging system - and don't forget to include the Mac and iOS users.
