A solution for loquacious co-workers

I subscribe to some internal mailing lists at work.  Oftentimes they are informative, sometimes amusings, but lately they have just become increasingly annoying.  I think I finally found the solution.  Essentially, it is a Do-Not-Disturb sign on the inane blatherings of a few mildly annoying individuals.

I am going to give it a shot as soon as Omar releases it to see how it works.  Right away I can think of another feature I would like it to have:

  • I want the ability to mark messages not only by thread, but by individual.  Certain individuals seem to have nothing better to do than spam the mailing lists and annoy everyone.  This way the thread could be killed regardless of subject if it was originated by someone.
Unfortunately for me, most of my email access during work hours is using OWA, so this won't help me there.  At least my hours in the evening will hopefully be less painful when using the full client.
