I have numerous email addresses containing dozens of folders I use to keep track of my emails. I have subfolders within folders to keep everything clean and easy to find. I really like to know where my emails are, should I ever need to find them in the future.
I've used many emails over the years. As a result, I regularly have emails from clients, colleagues or friends wind up in the “wrong” account. When that happens, I have a few options.
I can reply, asking them to update their records. This one is kind of annoying, right?
I can forward the email from the wrong account to the right. This one is super annoying!
Or I can take advantage of a helpful iPhone trick and simply move the email from one account to another with just a few clicks on the screen. Obviously this one is my favorite.
And it’s the subject of today’s post. Moving an email from one account to another within an iPhone or iPad is very simple.
If you hit reply all on the email after moving it, you'll notice that the original email (your "wrong" email) will be on the recipient list. The iPhone essentially treated this action as an email forward. But it vastly simplifies an otherwise cumbersome process.
That's it. You're done.
