    I like the idea, but haven't really found a use for it yet. Same goes with Automator. What do you guys use them for?

    i use smart mailboxes as temporary ways to keep all emails pertaining to some project grouped since my email can get messy (i have several addresses and several high email volume generating that come and go)...i also use it to keep track of emails i need to respond to since i easily put those off ;)

    is this just referring to Mail? I use smart playlists in iTunes to see which songs I've listen to the most or to automatically update songs in a certain genre when I add them.

    I finally found a use (good one too) for smart folders/mailboxes.

    I used a smart mailbox to gather all the emails I've received from the other four people in my group about a project we're working on.

    I then used a smart folder to gather up all the files I had on my computer related to that project.
