Title says it all. I didn't see that. I don't know if this is a programming question, since there may be a way to do it built in. If not, any programmers know how to do this?

Managing email ideally by archiving to one single folder. But I need tags to consistently ensure if I have to search for something in a particular category it is there.

E.g., someone sends an email. I read it. I tag it. I archive it.

I think we need some more specificity here: how are you managing your email? –  Lukasa Jun 7 '11 at 20:50

It's pre-release software very few (sane) people already use in production. What do you expect? –  Daniel Beck Jun 8 '11 at 15:20
    
I expect way too much, but otherwise life is boring. Cheers. –  thf Jun 8 '11 at 18:22

Looks like a commercial app for $30 will do the trick: http://support.indev.ca/discussions/questions/228-lion-mailtags

Looks pretty useful too.

I used it and with a minor upgrade it crashed, I had to uninstall it, and then I lost all my tags. I won't go back to that, because I can't trust that once I've archived a message I can reliably know it has been tagged. –  thf Nov 9 '11 at 20:41
