Gmail Priority Inbox

priority inbox

Google has just released a new feature for Gmail : the Priority Inbox or the automatic sorting of your important emails.

Gmail grounds itself over an algorithm which takes in account the persons to whom you send messages, the frequency, most used keyword /filters, etc… to set the priority emails. Over time, the algorithm tends to become better as you can indicate if a mail is important or not.

The feature has not been already activated on all accounts but it’s on the way.

By activating the sorting feature on your account, the emails will be categorized in three different sections:

1. Important and unread (at the top)
2. Starred (those that you have checked)
3. Everything else
