Yes. I've been pondering approaches to prioritizing the pool of unread messages. Most of my thinking so far is along the lines of the ability to automatically apply tags to new messages on various criteria combined with the ability to manipulate the order in which tags are presented in a view like what you're describing. For better or worse, with about 45k messages hitting my inbox per year *after* most of the list traffic gets peeled off and fed to a private NNTP server, it's not about reading all of my email any more... it's about finding and reading the stuff that actually matters *to me*. Can't tell you how excited I am about what's happening here! Bdale
