ClearContext – is an organizer for Microsoft Outlook email that analyzes how you handle email, who you respond to, what gets saved and what gets deleted, etc., then forms rules and priorities for how to deal with future email.
I have been following ClearContext and Xobni for more than a year now. I believe it was Om Malik who pointed me to them. Today they announced public beta for the personal version of ClearContext. Om Malik and TechCrunch have good reviews of ClearContext.
“Email applications are built around the concept of processing messages on a one-by-one basis, an approach that is no longer viable for many people due to the number of emails they receive and all of the different tasks now being done in email,” said Deva Hazarika, co-founder and CEO of ClearContext. “We provide the context to help people go beyond just dealing with individual messages, taking email productivity to a new level.”
ClearContext helps with project management: sorting and categorizing emails relating to a particular subject or project. The user can also separate emails according to their priority, set them to re-appear later, delegate them to a different user or file them into various project views.
The ClearContext Dashboard offers a consolidated view of e-mails, tasks, and appointments related to a project. Results can be pulled from multiple folders and data stores within and across Outlook and Exchange.
