I have my e-mail set up a bit differently and it really helps me sort  
through them.

I use Apple's Mail program, but I presume typical PC e-mail programs  
can do the same.  I have set up what Mail calls Rules for several  
different type of e-mails that I receive.

Everything from VirtualVairs comes into a separate mailbox just for  
VirtualVairs e-mails.  The same is true of FastVairs e-mails.  A third  
mailbox titled, "Joe" collects all the e-mails I receive from a friend  
by that name.  Finally, a separate mailbox collects ebay e-mails.   
EVerything else goes into my main mailbox.

This way, I don't have to sort through dozens of FastVairs and  
VirtualVairs e-mails to find what may be something important.  I can  
leave thousands of e-mails in my FastVairs or VirtualVairs mailboxes  
if I wish without clogging up my main mailbox.

I also have different Signatures set up to use depending on who I'm e- 
mailing.  As required by the rules, my VirtualVairs and FastVairs  
Signatures contain my whole, real name so readers can tell who I am  
and where I live.  I wish more would do the same.
