Why can't I archive mail labels? I don't need many of the one's I have (leftover from my MBA). They were relevant on a daily basis once, but now I'm using some less and less. I still want the labels around for search purposes, but not right up front.
To "fix" this I have prefaced non-primary labels with the letter "z" so they are at the bottom of the list. This makes them less cumbersome. But still pushed the extra Gmail Labs features further below (quick schedule overview, plus docs).
They should also let you re-order the labels either how the user wants, or at least based on alphabetical or frequency of usage.
