Computing: New ways to sort inbox e-mail

Microsoft has released a tool to help you sort your e-mails based on how often you correspond with them, which they think will help rank e-mails in your box based on how socially important the e-mail is. I wonder if Microsoft built in spyware to check on who you talk to, sort of like Sony. But the concept sounds cool. I wonder, though, if you get a lot of spam from the same source, will it sort those to the top?

Sounds like a flawed concept to me. Some of my most important emails (in my opinion) come from friends that I only get to hear from on rare occasions.
