Review

How do you handle your daily dose (or deluge) of email? Whatever your preferences, whatever your morning routine, chances are Nelson Email Organizer (NEO) can help you handle email better in less time.

The productivity gain comes largely from smart virtual folders.

Nelson Email Organizer does away with a folder model that confines each message to exactly one folder. Instead, every message shows up in multiple places — wherever it makes sense.

You will find any email in the correspondent's auto-folder, in the date folder that contains all mail sent or received at a certain date, possibly in the attachment folder, and if you flag or mark a message to do it will show up in the corresponding folders as well. NEO even collects emails from multiple Outlook stores seamlessly and makes it easy to see all mail in a conversation.

Of course, you can also define your own criteria for retrieving emails. Nelson Email Organizer comes with an impressive, lightning-fast search feature which allows you to find the right message quickly in an archive of hundreds of thousands.

While Nelson Email Organizer is easy to use, you can certainly benefit from taking the tutorials or reading the manual. They unveil many a salubrious tip for handling email more productively with NEO.
