Xobni (xobni.com) is a free Outlook plug-in that saves you time finding emails, conversations, contact info and attachments.  The software allows you to locate messages instantly because Xobni indexes your email automatically upon installation, which makes searching for words or phrases in your email lightning fast.

Xobni has five defining features: Lightning-Fast Search, Finding Attachments, Staying in Touch, Threaded Conversations, Discovering Connections and Email Analytics.

Let’s look deeper into Xobni’s Lightning-Fast Search.  The search feature helps users look for emails 50 times faster than Outlook.  Xobni claims that the email appears instantly as you type.

The software also splits the search into two categories – people and mail.  Xobni believes that users have an easier time remembering names over keywords.

Xobni’s search feature also links to your Yahoo! email account and allows you to search your Yahoo mail outside of your Yahoo mailbox.

Xobni also pulls contact info from email signatures, message bodies, Outlook contacts as well as from their partners: LinkedIn, Facebook, Hoovers, Skype and Yahoo.  This feature makes pulling up a phone number, company name, and title extremely easy.

The last important feature in the Search function is that Xobni also searches the email domains of every person you communicate with.  So when you are sure that the contact you are looking for comes from a certain company but you just can’t remember their name, Xobni will post the results in order from the person you’ve emailed the most at a certain company to the least emailed.  If you click on the results it will allow you to open a Hoover’s extension to see their company’s corporate profile.
