If you’ve ever tried to find an old email using Microsoft Outlook before then you probably know how frustrating this simple task can be. The search function built into Outlook is not only incredibly slow but it usually doesn’t find what you were looking for in the first place.
The solution to slow email searches is a 3rd party addon for Outlook called Xobni (inbox spelled backwards in case you were wondering). Xobni is very fast and accurate at finding exactly what you were looking for.
During the installation the program will create an index of all of your email messages. This index is what enables Xobni to provide super fast searches.
Xobni integrates into outlook to provide a sidebar which provides lots of useful information. Using the search box up top you can enter any text that might appear in the subject, body, or senders address of the email you are trying to find.
Another great feature this program provides is the ability to view all of the past attachments you have exchanged with someone. This feature is useful if you know who sent a file to you but you don’t remember when you received it.
Xobni can integrate with Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites to provide you with extra information about the people you email. You can view interesting statistics about how often you exchange emails with someone as well as what time of day that person typically responds to email.
I use Xobni on a daily basis and I definitely could not live without it but check it out for yourself.
