VIP Smart Folders for Mac Mountain Lion Mail


Mountain Lion for Mac OS X, 10.8, was released yesterday. I've been looking forward to using the new Mail VIP feature for a while now. It allows you to mark contacts as a VIP. My goal was to somehow move less important emails to a folder or smart mailbox.

To make this happen, I created the following Smart Mailbox for messages in my Inbox from VIPs.


That allowed me to make an inverse Smart Mailbox of messages in my Inbox NOT from VIPs.


With those in place, I now have two Inbox folders that I can use rather than the standard folder. When I'm working, I can focus on VIPs and when I have time, process the non VIP messages...
