We’ve written positively about Outlook add-in Xobni several times in the past. It’s ability to index and cross-reference the contents of large Outlook archives makes it a good fit for those trying to tame a busy online life. But the latest feature indicates a whole new set of possibilities for the product: they’ve added LinkedIn integration.
If you choose to enable the feature, Xobni automatically shows basic LinkedIn info when it displays user profiles, and lets you jump to the LinkedIn site for more details. Useful in itself, this feature makes me wonder what other outside-the-inbox features might be coming. If Xobni can smartly combine your email with the contents of the wider net, it could be a real winner.
