Sort out your email with priority, unread and important first Gmail options
Saturday 09 July 2011
Unimportant emails clogging up your inbox? Google is suggesting users make the transition from a first-come-first served inbox to an inbox that automatically sorts out your most important emails for you.
Google has provided users with a number of different sorting options in the past, including the popular "Priority Inbox," but now the company is highlighting new inbox styles and encouraging users to make the switch.
"Over the coming weeks, we're rolling out several new inbox styles to help you manage your mail in the way that works best for you," posted Andrew Moedinger, Google software engineer on the official Gmail blog.
The highlighted inbox sorting options include the default "Classic" inbox, Google’s "Priority Inbox" where important unread messages are filted to the top, "Important first" which pushes read and unread important emails to the top of the page, plus "Unread first" and "Starred first."
"After you've settled on a style you like and used it for about a week, these tabs will go away, You can always change your inbox style from the drop down menu next to the Inbox label or from the Settings page," says Google.
Microsoft’s Hotmail "Sweep" offers a similar email sorting feature, however, Hotmail Sweep helps users get rid of unwanted emails or spam while Gmail's sorted inboxes help users pinpoint the most important emails to read first.
