    Default Filing / Folder Best Practice

    What is considered to be the "best practice" for filing away messages that have been tagged?

    Is it ok to stick them all into one "Filed" folder (like Google) to get them out of the inbox, and then just work off of the tags / search? Or will that adversely impact performance?

    There's no performance hit, since we're not really storing messages in folders on the filesystem - that kind of data is simply metadata stored in the sql database. And, since we don't fetch the whole folder (but page through it) there's no issue there, either.

    The only possible impact is if you're syncing the folder via imap - then a really long folder list could hurt you.
