Informant 5 gives you a new “Mail” filter in your Tasks view that lets you manage multiple email accounts and view their Inbox. You can:
See the email in your Inbox.
Filter it by flagged email.
Create tasks from those emails
We’ve spent about a year and a half designing how this should work – surveying customers, business people, friends, family, news editors, and so on – and what we found is everyone uses email very differently. We went through many iterations and decided on a simple first-gen implementation so we can prioritize the areas you might want to see first.
If your Informant is having difficulty syncing to your email account please double check the email settings in Informant and make sure that they either mirror the device email settings for the same account or that they are have all of the standard settings correct if you choose to use an email account that is not already syncing to your device.
