I recently wrote a post on GTD with Mail.app and iCal and everything like that, and I mentioned that I use Mail Tags.
Well, I uninstalled it. I noticed that it really didn't provide me any value added that I couldn't do with some Smart Folders. So now I have two more Smart folders and no more Mail Tags. I still keep all my email (except for listserv email) in one mailbox named Read.
Basically instead of the traditional way of using email by putting it all into separate folders, I put everything into one folder and search it by using Smart Folders.
I created two more search folders to make stuff a bit easier, one called "Today" and one called "Yesterday" so I can look for email by day.
