Labels

Labels help you arrange and quickly find emails. You can assign any number of labels to each email.

Four standard labels already exist by default: Important, Unread, With attachments and Awaiting reply (displayed if response reminder is enabled). A list of these labels is displays under the list of folders.

Important emails are highlighted red in the email list:

  1. Assign a label
  2. Remove label
  3. Edit labels
  4. Sort messages by label
  5. I can't label a message
