    Hi Bob,

    I agree with you that it has been crazy that the giants weren’t and still aren’t proactively approaching companies like xobni or my company’s EmailTray division. Showing the social media profiles of an email sender should have been the norm at least 2 years ago but still isn’t an integral part of products like Outlook and Thunderbird or even Gmail. EmailTray goes two steps further than xobni in that it’s a full email client (not an add-on for other clients) with 4 inboxes where email is sorted by priority via a smart algorithm. EmailTray also authenticates emails from large volume senders so phishing attempts are easily spotted and sent to the spam box.
