You know for the longest time I never thought of this with Mail, but is there away to make folders for each person that sends me mail? You know how in Outlook Express you can make different folders for each person, and then when they send you an e-mail you just simply drag and drop into their folder. Does this exist for Mail? I have looked in Mail, but I can't seem to figure it out.

Its very possible, and if you want to, it can even be set so that it will *automatically* get sent to the folder!

Making the new folder, is quite simple, but the specifics since I'm on a PC at the moment I can't give to you. But I believe if you open the Mail Boxes drawer try control-clicking in there or look under the file menu...

Then if you go to the Mail Preferences you can go to the rules section, and set a rule that says if the mail is from person 'x' then put it in x's folder. That kind of thing, pretty easy.

Hope this helps some, also try the Mail Help installed on the computer.
I still remember Macnutt.

Yep, looks like the right way to me. Small word of caution: Mail will create boxes 'from where you are' i.e. if you have an existing mailbox selected in your drawer, it will create subs to that box. So rather than use the box-slash-subbox naming convention recommended, simply create one box called, say, friends; then select it and create the individual sub-boxes.
