    Some of my friends use Rules in mail to assign certain e-mails to certain mailboxes and others prefer using smart mailboxes.

    Which one do you use and why?

    Smart mailboxes every time. That way I can archive my mail by date and still keep related mail together. It also means that when I pick my mail up on a remote device it's where I expect it (in the inbox!)

    I just move them to mailboxes with click and drag. I don't trust Rules or Smart Mailboxes to do what I want.
