Another way to intelligently search your e-mail

At least according to this article in Fast Company. The company the article reports on is called Bloomba and is available on Stata Laboratories site.

I checked out the site, read the article, and it looks like a great product, however I will not download it. Why? Because my company uses Microsoft Outlook with Exchange server and the Bloomba software only accesses e-mail via POP3. Now my company does have POP3 access enabled when I am connected to the internal network, but I really don't want to use Bloomba to access my e-mail and still have to use Outlook to access my calendar, global address book, etc. I guess I'll have to stick with my X1 and Outlook solution to be able to intelligently search through all of my e-mails and attachments (I actually got excited when I saw on the site that a 2.0 version of the software was coming out, assuming that it would be an Exchange-compatible version, only to find that it was calendar enhancements, Palm syncing, and some other stuff)

Oh well . . . Bloomba are you listening?
