In a worst case, I forward it to myself with a subject that is
meaningful to me.
I use subfolders to group ones on similar topics, and if a e-mail
actually covers two folders I'll even mail it to myself to produce a
second copy so I can have it in both folders and know I'll find it if
I don't 'keep' a lot of SAS mailings, but I do recipes, and gmail has
been great for that and would probably work for this too.
It gets around having to make double copies as rather than storing in
folders you apply labels and can apply multiple labels.
So you could just forward the one's you want to keep to your g-mail
addy, clean up and garbage you don't want to keep, change the subject if
need be, and then apply all the labels you want to it and archive it.
You have 2GB of space, so you can keep a lot.
Then, if you have a macro question you can pull up all the ones you
labeled macro and then even search if you know a specific person or a
specific word that was mentioned (you have the google search engine at

Subject: Q-tip: organizing code snippets
Q-tip: question and tip, in one!
How do people here organize code snippets? Having lurked this list for
some time I have a (growing large) "keepers" folder in my mailbox, but
occasionally the subject line is not very descriptive of the contents..
As the number of keepers grow, and I have problems finding what I *know*
is there somewhere (but of course can't find), I have come to that I
need to get the information organized! Does anyone have a good way of
There's plenty of freeware, and not so free.. typically 29 bucks or
I have looked at http://www.treepad.com/ (lite), and also
which is very simple and kind of sweet :) Any others I should look at?
Anything to buy that is worth the money is interesting as well.
The Tip is of course that if you, like me, have no better way than just
storing mails or sas-files, you can start getting organized to!
The above are searchable, for one.. After some work, you'll have a nice
little toolbox going!
