Google yesterday introduced a ‘Priority Inbox’ for its Gmail clients. This is a new feature designed to automatically identify the most important e-mails and separate it from the rest by giving it a more prominent place at the top of user inboxes.
Priority Inbox will divide your Gmail inbox into three sections ‘Important and unread’, ‘Starred’ and ‘Everything else’. As you receive mail, Gmail will automatically flag some of them as important, based on a variety of factors such as the people you email most, the mails you open and the ones that you reply to.
You can also assist in prioritising e-mail by clicking on one of two buttons (a plus sign and a minus sign) to correctly mark a conversation as important or not important.
This new feature will be made available to all Gmail users (including users of Google Apps) over the next week or so.
