We know Google, yahoo, Microsoft and almost all other have empowered their mailing system to fight spam and we hardly see any spam mails landing into inbox these days.
Perhaps ‘spam mails’ once the biggest threat to online mailing system is no longer a threat. But even bigger problem today is to keep your inbox free of not so important mail as browsing through them or simply deleting them exhausts your time and almost a torture test for your tolerance level.
Receiving friend request from facebook or someone following you on twitter, breaking news from a news site or not so important message from your friend, technically speaking all these are not spam but are difficult and painful to deal with. BUT NO LONGER !
Google has now come with a remarkable new feature “Priority Inbox” which will now pick most important mails for us based on our email reading habit.
Priority Inbox splits your inbox into three sections: “Important and unread,” “Starred” and “Everything else”. It analyzes your experience with particular sender – is a message from someone whose mail you tend to open and reply to? Was the e-mail sent only to you, or was it part of an e-mail list? Did the message contain keywords that have proved interesting to you in the past? If a message makes the threshold for importance, Gmail marks it with a small yellow tag. These messages will appear at the top of your inbox, above the rest of your mail.
The more you use it the better will be the filtering. The integration of two buttonsto mark a mail as important and unimportant will train your inbox to filter out mails in future. It is expected that at least you use the feature for 2 weeks before the filters are optimized as per your needs.
