AwayFind offers plenty of easy-to-use and useful ways to make sure you don't miss important emails, but its chief limitation is that it can monitor only the messages you're expecting. Should important news arrive from an unexpected source, you could still miss out …and it's exactly that uncertainty that prevents me from relying on AwayFind wholeheartedly.

AwayFind acts as a gate between your email inbox and you, that lets through only message you want to see and alerts you of their presence by phone, text message, IM, or through its the AwayFind mobile app. It's a worthwhile and reasonably priced service.
- Email assistant that sends you alerts when important message arrive, based on criteria you set.
- Good selection of criteria.
- Alerts deliverable by phone, text message, instant messaging service.
- Creates a new inbox with only emails you want to see.
- Twitter alerts never worked in testing.
- Some problems with mobile apps.
- Slightly inelegant interface design.

I have to admit that I genuinely like what AwayFind is doing here. I think that having the ability to receive “priority” messages via SMS and other outlets is a good way to stay away from checking your inbox every 5 seconds. But, I do think that there is a small audience for this service.
At the very least, sign up for the starter account to see if this service could work for you; it is definitely worth looking at if you are obsessively checking your inbox.
