To deal with the flood of e-mail and to filter mail that isn’t very important, which it called “Bologna”, Google on Tuesday rolled out a new Gmail service called Priority Inbox which automatically prioritises incoming messages and places the most important ones at the top of the inbox. Priority Inbox is like a personal assistant, helping to focus on the messages that matter without requiring to set up complex rules.
While the priority emails are automatically placed at the top of the inbox, Google has also created two other folders. The starred folder appears directly beneath the Priority section and includes all messages that the user marks to be read later. The third section is called Everything Else and includes all messages that aren’t routed directly to spam or to the two other folders.
