<P> Email provides the average person with the ability to instantaneously communicate with people across the planet. However, the ease of this communication not only allows people to exchange information, but can also generate a large volume of messages. The methods of interacting with this repository currently in use are far from adequate.</P> <P> This thesis focuses on the development of a new interface for managing one's inbox and mail folders. The approach provides the user with a data visualization of an overview of the entire mailbox, or a chosen subset, at once. The tool includes interactions that allow a user to focus his or her attention on specific email and delve deeper into it in a simple intuitive fashion. A user study confirmed the usefulness of the resulting system. </P>
