Abstract. The organization of documents is a task that we face as computer
users daily. This is particularly true for management of email. Typically email
documents are organized in directory structures, which reflect the users'
ontology with respect to his daily communication needs. Since users' activities

inaccurate and manual maintenance is a painstaking task. In this paper we
present an approach for integrating user-defined folder structures with
classification schemes that have been automatically derived from the email
content. This allows to automating the process of evolving and optimizing
directory structures without sacrificing knowledge captured in manually created
folder structures. A prototype demonstrating the feasibility and utility of our
approach has been developed and evaluated. With our approach we address
