2. HOW MANY PERCENT OF YOUR INCOMING EMAILS ARE TAGGED AS IMPORTANT?
@ario: About 80% of my email is important. I use a lot of filters and the Priority Inbox to manage my email and keep it nice & tidy. Sometimes the occassional marketing mail does fall through the cracks.
#3 IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO SHOW EMAILS INSTEAD OF LIST VIEW?
@ario: Most people are used to a list view, but I think there could be many other ways to show email that have yet to be explored. What if your email was like a garden. Each msg would be a blade of grass, converstations could be like flowers or trees. flowers=your favs
