Paradigm wars: search vs file

I get a lot of email at my job. It’s hard to keep track of.  Some emails are hard to categorize. I have over 100 folders to sort emails into. I’m falling behind.

I read about Google’s GMail. They say, just search for emails when you need them and not try to file them. GMail has essentially two folders, the Inbox and everything else. But it’s searchable using the familiar Google keyword search paradigm.

Of course Google provides desktop tools to search emails, so I don’t have to pick between Outlook (it’s a corporate thing) and GMail. But maybe I shouldn’t be wasting all that time organizing mail into folders. Ya think?
