(Newser) – Google has a new Gmail tool to help users manage their inboxes. "Priority Inbox" splits the inbox into three categories: important messages, starred messages, and the rest. Priority Inbox's utility lies in the algorithms that determine which messages to automatically flag as "important" to you—it looks at which people you regularly respond to and which emails you delete, archive, or star. Those emails get pushed to the top. You can help train Priority Inbox by flagging messages as important. More details at ReadWriteWeb, or see the video in the gallery.

I would love it if gmail could just offer us folders like normal e-mail has.

Annoying. I hope I can turn this feature off. I think it will make organizing my emails more erratic than anything. But, I admit, it's probably possible to accurately label emails by reading (with software) and coming to a vague understanding of what the email is about.

Google will soon be answering our emails based on our previous answers to emails of this type. I for one look forward to having my Gmail automatically send emails to my loved ones
