Sorting and filtering your email

The first step in the war against greymail is good organisation. Luckily the latest version of Hotmail lets you view and filter your emails quickly; with one click you can filter your messages by popular categories and immediately see the results.

You can specify whether you want Hotmail to display all of your messages, only unread messages, messages from your contacts, social updates (emails from Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn and other social networks), groups and newsletters. There's also a category for those emails that aren't easily pigeonholed (everything else).
