Will you ever be able to 4D your Gmail?
This great piece of work by Merlin Mann was presented to Google 18 months ago. The direction Gmail has taken since then (all kinds of silly whistles and bells to their email service) makes me believe they are still fast asleep when it comes to making email more productive.
Not to worry - there is a workaround. Simply add your Gmail POP account details to your Outlook and run Orla on top.
Bingo. Efficiency and productivity at a stroke.
Used to be a lawyer then thought better of it. Now I'm the CEO of Commonsense Business Systems Inc which developed and sells Orla, a logical, intuitive system for managing the work you have to do as a result of all that email you send and receive.
