If you are like me, you have a tremendous amount of email to sort through each day. Outlook Categories can help by allowing you to color code your email. Once categorized, you can group, search, and arrange your email by category. Even better, setting rules (using categories) enables you to automate the process of marking/categorizing email as soon as it hits your inbox. Outlook will apply the rule and color code your email accordingly.
