heads up re email

After a long weekend away, like everyone else, I returned to a ton of email — not usually a surprise when I haven’t checked it for a day or two. BUT – I was using my ipad to check email over the weekend and thought I’d taken care of everything that came in.

I use rules to sort email as it comes in and send it to appropriate files – for classes, committees, advisees and such. The problem is that the ipad email program evidently does not recognize new messages in any folder but the inbox. All those pre-sorted new messages got missed until I signed on to my workstation here at Briar Cliff.

So – if you use rules to sort incoming mail, don’t rely on the count of new messages, and remember to check all your folders (for me that’s a lot – at least 2 dozen).
