By Ryan Williams, - I am going to start a new series of blog entries in which I will review new or lesser known technologies and software I think people will find useful. This week the software is Xobni. Xobni is a plug-in for Microsoft Outlook and it loads to the right of your inbox in the Outlook window. Xobni tracks and indexes your email communications and provides some interesting information about each email. For instance, when you highlight an email message in your inbox, Xobni will show you the following about that email:

  • Rankings, graphs, and statistics detailing how you and your contacts use email
  • A list of every other email the person has sent you sorted by conversation thread
  • A list of every attachment the person has sent you
  • Phone numbers that exist in the emails
  • The top people the sender of the email also sends to
  • Plus more…

The plug-in also provides a pretty quick full-text email search which is helpful. Some of the features are trivial but interesting nonetheless. The product's website says the plug-in is currently in beta but I have not had any trouble with it. Oh and by the way, at least for now, the plug-in is free. In my opinion, it's worth checking out.You can find the download here.

Happy teching,

Ryan Williams
