A few weeks ago I wrote a post that showed you a way to tame your email inbox (here is a link in case you missed it: http://realtytechbytes.com/taming-the-wild-email-inbox/).
If you did what I suggested that you do you have had an amazingly empty Inbox to look at at the end of each day because all of your email has either been acted upon or filed away. But, now that it is filed, how can you find it quickly and easily?
I am going to look at a few Outlook add-on products and one from Google that will make finding email that has been filed a simple job.
First we’ll look at NEO Find, which currently costs $15.00 after a 90 day free trial. NEO also offers a Pro version that may be a bit more than you want for $49.95, again after a 90 day free trial.
Next, we’ll look at Google Desktop Search, also free. Although technically not an email search tool, it will index everything on your computer and allow you to find any file, email, word, phrase and anything else that you are looking for on your computer, and do so with the speed and accuracy of the Google Web search that you already know how to use.
Finally, you might want a little help with the filing process along with the ability to quickly find the emails that you have filed. In that case, SpeedFiler may be exactly what you need. Currently priced at $24.95 for the Personal version or $39.95 for the Professional version. Both come with a 30 day Free Trial.
