I wouldn't do that if I were you. A long time ago, when I had a real job and my 
email was handled by Exchange Server, we were specifically told to remove mail 
from 'Inbox' as soon as we could. This was because 'Inbox' content was held on 
the local server, as opposed to other folders which were held as part of the 
user's data. Obviously, if everyone left everything in 'Inbox' then the Exchange 
server's disks filled up rather quickly - which was what happened.

I don't know if this is still the case, but it is still good practice to move 
email out of the Inbox and into some kind of organised storage of your own. 
Nothing prevents you tagging or searching if it is stored elsewhere.
