Creating a Reply Label (to easily see which e-mails you have sent a reply)

Creating a label and filter for the e-mails that you have replied to will allow you to go to one place to make sure you have replied to those important e-mails. Please note that the filter works best when in Conversation View in Gmail. If you have Conversation View turned off, you can simply create the label and drag it on to any email to which you reply.  This article will explain how to create the label and filter.
