The psychology of deferring email: 
The snooze button is over half a century old, but it didn’t make a big splash in our inboxes until 2010, when a small startup baked it into a Gmail plugin they called Boomerang. Boomerang has since added a slew of other features (including some fun game-based ones) but their core value remains the same: allow you, the recipient, to decide when an incoming email should return to your inbox.

And it really is a value: it played a big role in Mailbox’s initial success, and now, the ability to defer has become almost de rigueur for new mail apps, Skimbox included.

Why? Well, because people like it, and they like it because it either gives them more control over their inbox or gives them the perception of having more control over their inbox.
