I’ve released the toolbar I’ve been chatting up for the last couple weeks. It’s in ALPHA, but I’ve spent some significant time making sure the backend can support decent traffic. Here are the basic into FAQs. The full FAQs can be found here: Full JW!Convo FAQs

What is JW!Convo?
ALPHA ver0.1 rel: 16 January 2006
JW!Convo is a toolbar enabling Microsoft Outlook users to organize and view their mail in a more intuitive conversation format. Patterned initially after the Gmail conversation model, JW!Convo enables users to view conversations they’ve had with specific people over time. The conversation thread is date sorted first (like Gmail) and then sub-categorized by conversation title.
Core features within JW!Convo include:
- Mass Import enables you to import your entire Inbox and Sent mailbox into JW!Convo. Each email in your Inbox and Sent mailbox is first encrypted using 256-bit encryption, compressed to about 1/10th of its original size and then sent to the JW!Convo servers for indexing and storage. Each email sent to the database is only added once. So you’ll never see duplicates in your conversation views.
- View List is a summary view of the people you’ve interacted with. It lists them alphabetically by email address and displays the last date you’ve had contact with them.
- View Convo enables you to view conversations you’ve had with someone. You can go to View Convo two ways. First, simply highlight an email from someone in your Inbox and click the View Convo button on the Outlook toolbar. It will take you immediately to the conversation. Alternatively, you can View Convo via the View List button on the Outlook toolbar. Click on a person you’d like to view a conversation for and you’ll immediately be taken to the conversation.
Automatic Send/Receive updates
- Each time you send or receive an email, JW!Convo automatically updates your views.
