I use GMail's "labels" liberally. I name labels after subject/topic, names of archives, libraries, surnames, books, names of online resources, names of journals, cities, era, etc. A single email can be filed under one or more labels.

GMail allows one to create sub-labels. E.g, I have a label for US National Archives under the label Archives. I use special sub-labels to signify status of a particular line of inquiry, such as "TODO", "OPEN", "CLOSED".

Hope this helps...
