If you’re a fan of the columnar, grid-like interface for watching Twitter that is encompassed by the desktop application TweetDeck, then you might be interested in trying out a new spin on that app – this time for your Outlook email. OutlookDeck, a Windows only desktop application, lets you perform searches of your Outlook email putting each search query into its own column. All the emails from your boss? That could be column, for example. Email containing a particular keyword? Another column. And so forth and so on.
I’m not entirely convinced that this interface is really any more useful than when you create a rule to move mail to a folder or assign some other action to it (categorize it, flag it, etc.), but it definitely is creative. And I guess columns are the new hotness right now for organizing your information flow. If that appeals to you, OutlookDeck will be right up your alley.
If you want to use OutlookDeck, you’ll need to run the .NET Framework 3.5 and have Windows Search enabled. You can grab the download from here.
