Our recent discussion of innovations that should be added to email included the notion of "snoozing" individual emails. Microsoft's Office Labs research division has come up with a different "snooze" concept in its experimental Email Prioritizer add-on prototype, which lets you specify a time period when you don't want to deal with incoming mail, and doesn't deliver it until after that point. There's also an auto-rating system to identify high-priority mails when you do get back to your inbox. Sadly, the software only works with Exchange-enabled Outlook, so home office warriors can't test it out, but it's an indication of how future versions of Microsoft's mail client might evolve.
