Google has released a new experiment feature in Gmail Labs that lets users activate multiple views within their inboxes. Fittingly, this feature is called "Multiple Inboxes." In case you’re having a hard time visualizing it, software Engineer Octavian Costache on the Gmail Blog shares the following image:

"In addition to a quick view of my important labels, I also like to keep all my starred and draft messages in separate panels," explains Costache.

Once you have Multiple Inboxes turned on, you can configure what you want to see, and set the number of messages displayed and the positioning of your panels from the Multiple Inboxes section under Settings.

Alex Chitu at the Google Operating System Blog notes that if you are looking to see the inboxes of multiple email accounts, you’ll be better off checking out Gmail’s mail fetcher. This automatically labels the messages fetched from other accounts and archives them.

As always, Google is encouraging feedback on the feature to improve it for everyone. Who knows, with enough improvement, maybe it will become a full fledged feature one day.

    I noticed some time in January 2009, the button to selectively reply to and quote a particular message in a thread in gmail vanished. With gmail not providing a place to contact them about this, I guess it’s just never coming back.

      I didn’t see the point of Twitter until I joined to give it a try. Now I use it on almost daily basis to post news and build followes which may in turn become customers one day. I have already seen some traffic from it.
