I have 6 email and 4 IM accounts that I regularly check, and until now I've been using Netvibes to keep an eye on my inboxes but I think I found a new tool that makes managing my inboxes and IM accounts even easier.
Email world: meet Orgoo, an e-mail/IM integration service that sticks together all your different mail accounts, contacts, and IM buddies onto one page. I've been playing around with it a bit today and I think it definitely has potentional once it comes out of beta. Here's a short video that gives you a nice overview of what it does:
In the welcome email I received when I signed up, it said this:
Just some of the things you can do with Orgoo:
- Get all your IM accounts organized in one buddy list
- Get all your email accounts in one inbox, or organized in separate folders
- Create your own video chat rooms and invite your friends to talk
- Send and receive SMS from your computer
- Instantly reply to emails with IM
- Save and organize all of your conversations regardless of platform
- Find anything with Orgoo Search: emails, IMs, video chats, contacts, buddylists...
And so much more coming (very) soon...
- Freemail - pull your Yahoo and HotMail freemail accounts into Orgoo.
- SocialLink - get all the updates happening on yours and your friend's profiles on any of the social networks.
- Open API's so developers can build on top of Orgoo's integrated communications platform.
- Video Chat Widget - have multi-user video chats right in your Facebook or MySpace profile, or anywhere that supports widget integration.
- Conversation View
- Improved Search - Yes, we know our current search, while accurate, is far too slow. We're working on it.
- Safari - Users are already asking for it and very soon we will be supporting Safari.
It's a bit early still, but you may want to keep this one in mind when you are testing your email designs in different mail clients.
