Gmail Priority Inbox Kills Email Overload
By on August 31st, 2010

Have you ever woken up in the morning and started to get a headache because you have to check your emails? Have you ever had to go through hundreds of unread emails just to find that 10 of them were important. Of course, there are several workflows and filters you can put in place to make sure that you read only important emails, however, none of them might be perfect.

Thankfully, Google might have got something right, because they have managed to build something that would take away the hassle of reading emails everyday. "Priority Inbox" as the service is called is dubbed as a boon for heavy email users.

The service will help people who get hundreds or thousands of emails everyday to easily figure out what is important and what is not by using smart filters and algorithms. Gmail Priority Inbox allows you to split your Inbox into into three sections: Important and unread,Starredand Everything else.

All new messages are scanned as flagged automatically if they are important. Once that is done, you can quickly scan the unread messages to find the important one’s and then check Everything else at a later point of time to see the other messages. This is definitely a powerhouse feature for users like me who receive hundreds of emails throughout the day.

Does it work? Well several lucky users had an opportunity to try the feature and they have all been singing praises of it. TechCrunch Editor Jason Kincaid says that in his experience he never saw an important email slip away into the "Everything else" category, which is definitely very impressive.

Gmail Priority Inbox will be rolled out to users in the next few weeks, this feature will also be available for Google Apps users. Just keep an eye for a new link which says "New! Priority Inbox".
