Folders4Gmail: Create nested labels in Gmail

In General, Google, HowTo, Misc, Tips N Tricks, Tools on July 11, 2007 at 10:27 am

As you know Labels are so convenient in Gmail to deal with the huge volume of emails. Depends on who you are it could get cluttered with so many different labels defined to handle different contexts. Folders4Gmail is a cool solution to this issue. This Greasemonkey script lets you structure the labels like folders with nested labels that could make it easy to handle the plethora of labels that you might end up with.

You can create the nested look by inserting “\” into the label name. So to create the “Middle” folder as shown in the screenshot, you need to create two labels, one with the name “Top Level” and a second with the name “Top Level\Middle.” Once you do that the script will sense the “\” and will nest the “Middle” label under “Top Level”.

Folders4Gmail is a free download for Firefox with the Greasemonkey extension. You can download the script from here.
