What is the difference between email folders and Gmail Labels?
|You can apply any number of Labels to 1 single message||1 email can be sent to only one folder or you can only copy emails to multiple folder|
|Gmail uses conversation and one label can track all the conversation||NA|
|A conversation can have email from Sent or Draft or Inbox or Archive. Label can pull all that when you click on it||You will have to remember where every related message is|
|You have the option of searching the conversation by Label||This may not be the same with Folders|
|You can add more labels later||You have to copy the emails to more folders|
|You can delete or remove the label applied to an email by one click||You cannot do it easily|
So these are only the theory of the difference between Labels and Folders. If you start using Gmail labels you will see more differences.
My opinion is Labels are the best.
If you have any questions or suggestions please post a comment.
