<< I'd like to know also how other
people organize all these E-mails too. Gail
I bought literature filing shelves with 24 cubbies that fit 8.5x11 size paper
at Sam's Club. I have one on my desk at school and one at home. I categorized
and labeled as I was filing the hard copy e-mail. I keep another pile of e
mail, with only web site addresses, next to the computer. Before filing, I
highlight the subject and important points, so when I browse, it jumps out at
me. Then when I want to use the idea, I put it in my lesson plan binder on the
current page, temporarily.
I had quite a backlog of unread, incoming mail that I had accumulated off
line. I copied and pasted just the info part of the e mails into one new file
and deleted the e mail as I finished. I wanted to empty my file cabinet. My
computer went down before I saved the new file, and I lost it all. I did not
even know which dates I had copied, pasted and deleted. Now I just print the e
mail (and get all the headers).
Do you live in the Chicago area? I live in Buffalo Grove and teach in Cicero.
