    Gmail users who feel swamped by a flood of messages in their inbox will now have help sorting them out, with "Priority Inbox".

    "Priority Inbox" is a new feature for Gmail users who are getting swamped by massive amounts of messages in their inbox. This feature pushes a user's most important e-mails to the top of the inbox list and leaves them there. The new feature was scheduled to be part of Gmail midnight Monday ET.

    Gmail users should see a red "New Features" link in their inbox on Tuesday morning, with that you can enable the "Priority Inbox" feature.

    An algorithm will determine what messages go into the "Prioty Inbox". This will depend on key phrases in the message, like the identity of the sender and if the e-mail was sent to one individual or a group.

    So if you received a message from say a family member (Spouse, Son/Daughter, etc...) it would get listed above/ahead of some promotional e-mails that the Gmail user might have subscribed to.

    Gmail users will be able to personalize their priority boxes, removing and/or adding e-mails as they'd like to prioritize them.

    Gmail has added quite a few tweaks recently and it looks good so far.

    But if you had left it, it would be a marker of how we decimate spam posts, and a warning to would be spam crapper one post wonders.


    It would say, "we will nuke you, here's the button and we ain't afraid to use it". ;)
