The founder of Xobni was frustrated by the slowness of Microsoft Outlook and the difficulty he had in searching his e-mails. So, he's created a plug-in tool that will index the e-mails, making it easy to search them. There's also an "intelligent filter" that will display phone numbers and other social networking features associated with an e-mail. The company plans to eventually make the plug-in work with other e-mail programs as well.
