Email workflows based on #tag filters

I use #tags either in the subject or body of the email to enable pre-defined filters to apply appropriate labels on them to manage my common email workflows:
  • Bookmarking: I email bookmarks to myself especially from my android phone (using the very convenient "Share page" via Gmail option) with the #bookmark tag.
  • Read Later: This is an extension of bookmarking and I use the #readlater tag.
  • File Storage: I email files or forward emails with attachments of interest to myself with the #files tag.
  • Capturing ideas: I email ideas/notes to myself with the #ideas tag.
  • Task Management: I haven't fully explored this yet.
