I’m going to play with it. However, I doubt anyone can prioritize my email. 

Microsoft Research’s Community Technology presents SNARF, the Social Network and Relationship Finder.

SNARF was built around the notion that social network information that is already available to the computer system can be usefully reflected to the user: a message from a manager might be seen differently than a message from a stranger, for example. SNARF applies this idea to email triage: handling the flow of messages when time is short and mail is long.

And while we’re on the subject of free tools for email, I’ll mention two great ones:  Lookout, the Outlook search tool now owned by Microsoft, is fantastic. Download it here. Another, of course, is my ever-favorite RSS Popper, which brings RSS feeds right into Outlook.
