    I started playing around with indev's MailTags. The default tags are preceded with the "@" symbol. I've seen this done in other tagging systems but I'm not sure what its significance is, though I seem to remember it may have something to do with spotlight. Any idea why this is done?

    Looks like I can answer my own question. The @ symbol is used in GTD methodologies to designate actionable tasks. So @followup is a list of follow up actions. Not sure why I thoght it might have something to do with spotlight
