In our daily work, we always recall something by tracking mail. The common way is searching specific user's mails, and find out interested message. We have to input the name manually, once any typo, we can't find out right info, and we have to research it. It's very boring. Another way, we can sort out all mails by names, following that, we need to pick up useful mails in large amount of mails. Both of ways are a bit of an annoyance.
