"The problem of email overload is serious and growing every day," said David Wihl, CEO of Skimbox.

Skimbox's CEO David Wihl, whose enterprise background involves founding SoftArtisans, a fifteen-year old software company which sold its OfficeWriter product to Microsoft in 2007, understands the challenges first-hand that enterprise customers have when facing email overload, but also the security and compliance issues they face.
Though Skimbox works with Gmail, making it also a consumer product, he refers to its Gmail support as 'more of demo' of the Skimbox technology, and not the startup's business model. Its larger goal is selling into Microsoft Exchange-based organizations.
Wihl says he began Skimbox initially by building an ingestion tool which would allow enterprise customers to run reports and analytics on their email. But the feedback he got from early testers is that they were facing much larger problems with email handling and overload. "For us, it was a small step to take the email that was already in a NoSQL database and do some classifying and sorting of email on their behalf," he says.

"We're basically building a neural net," explains Wihl.

The app is designed for knowledge workers, execs and others who receive 50 to 500 "actionable" emails daily, as opposed to those whose inboxes receive 1000's of these (as they likely already have rules in place, says Wihl), nor consumers with a manageable amount of email.
Batch Triage Bigger Plans
In addition to the intelligence used in sorting messages from skim to main, Skimbox does include Mailbox-like gestures for archiving, deleting and deferring, but also offers multi-edit capabilities, which lets you work through messages in batches. "Right now, we're just working on triage, but once you have this corpus of email, you can group it in different ways," says Wihl, hinting at future plans.
