Bringing life back to desktop email clients…

For a while now, our entire company of staff has moved all their emails into the cloud… The good thing was that we are using Google Hosted Email account which is a free service for small size company to have your company email hosted by Google!!! With that you get 6 over gig of mail box space and Google’s world class hosting services, speed and reliability.

Check out Google Hosted here.

Back to my post, so Outlook is pretty much dead in our company thanks to Google but I am probably still the only faithful one still using Outlook on a day to day basis, more because it gives me things like reminder and categories flag for different emails and task which is something that I find pretty useful. Gmail do have flag but nothing more detail. Thanks to IMAP support in Gmail, I find myself using both Outlook and Gmail rather seamlessly… but now, the tilt may change again, thanks to a company called Xobni!

Extracted from their site:


Xobni Insight is an add-on for Microsoft Outlook that offers effortless email management and provides instant access to the most important information in your email.

After a quick install, you’ll see the new Xobni toolbar appear in Outlook – and suddenly your Outlook productivity will burst to life with blazing fast email search, automatic phone number discovery, threaded conversations, and more.

Watch our demo video, or read below to see how Xobni Insight improves your email experience. Or better yet, sign up to try the beta right now:


It is so cool to see such innovation in desktop email clients again… I have signed up for the beta and hope the integration with Outlook is pretty solid cos I certainly don’t want my client to be crashing all the time. Microsoft, if you are on a buying spree this year for some good company / technology to bring life back to your Office suit, this could be one to look out for…

Can’t wait…
