Google brings Priority Inbox beta to Gmail

Google has developed a way to help Gmail users sort their mail with the beta rollout of Priority Inbox on Tuesday. The experimental method lets the spam filters prioritize important e-mail and sort them accordingly so users are not overwhelmed by a plethora of messages. Priority Inbox splits inbound messages into "Important and unread," "Starred," and "Everything else."

It sorts these messages based on how often a specific sender is e-mailed, e-mails that are often replied to and by a user's own input. Buttons marked with a plus or minus sign will change the automatic priority Gmail has given to certain addresses and e-mails. Users can also customize the filters to mark certain messages as important or unimportant, as well as rearrange the three inbox sections.

The Priority Inbox beta will launch over the next week to Gmail users and those who use Google Apps.
