If you work closely with e-mail, do not want to forget anything and do everything – you will have to create a system of reminders for important emails. The easiest way to do this on iOS devices is to mark Email as important with flags. This is convenient because iPhone sorter mails with “different colors” flags, this adds clarity to the application.
