View only mail with attachments on iOS

A crowded inbox makes it very difficult to see the emails that are actually useful. With dozens (if not even hundreds) of subscriptions and notifications, the important messages can easily get lost in the crowd. A simple solution to filter your inbox is to view only mail with attachments on iOS as these messages usually contain useful information and files.

This option is a very convenient one since you don’t need to actually clean your email inbox as well all know that can take a long time, which we’re rarely willing to give up for this purpose.

The best part is, you can view only mail with attachments on iOS without installing any third-party app – this a stock feature available in the Mail app, although many users are completely ignoring it.
