Exciting news for e-mail overload victims from ClearContext. Brad Meador reports that the company is hard at work adapting their Information Management System to the new user interface and capabilities in Outlook 2007 and that they are planning a major release while Outlook 2007 is still in beta.
Brad's post details the specific areas ClearContext is focusing on to integrate IMS into Outlook's new UI and feature set including making the add-in Ribbon friendly and taking advantage of the new To-Do Bar. It looks very promising.
Check out the post on the ClearContext blog for the details on how IMS can enhance Outlook's native capabilities to make e-mail, tasks, and appointments easier to manage and act on. I've been a big fan of this tool and continue to hope that they can find a way to add support for IMAP mail so I can take greater advantage of its capabilities.
UPDATE: Deva Hazarika from ClearContext just sent me a note to point out two things I should have mentioned. First, a free version of ClearContext is now available. Second, they are conducting their annual e-mail usage survey. Last year's study generated some very interesting statistics. If you have a few minutes, please take the survey. There are, of courses, prizes to be won by some lucky responders and everyone who completes the survey gets a $15 discount coupon.
