Microsoft Garage today revealed their latest project. ‘Email Insights’ is a lightweight search client for your email which comes with superfast autocomplete, spell correct and fuzzy name search. In addition to time ordered search results, Email Insights can offer relevance based search results. It also comes with features like tabbed email searches and quick commands from search box to make you productive with email.
One of the motivations for building Email Insights was the fact that the email search experience today lags far behind the web search experience. A user might search for an email with some keywords and keep scrolling down the search results to find that elusive email. A user has to remember the keywords from an email or the spelling of peoples’ names to get to the required email. Moreover, having a complex application with hundreds of features is an overkill for doing some quick tasks like send one liner emails.
