New E-mail features in Windows Phone Mango demoed in video
Another new feature are linked inboxes, not to be confused with unified inboxes as Audrey is quick to note. Unlike in iOS and Android where all e-mails are clumped into one inbox, you can link accounts together. So, rather than having work and personal e-mail mixed together, you can keep just personal and work separate, but still have multiple accounts in the same inbox.
These may not be the most innovative features, but Microsoft has put enough thought into them that they may end up being better than current offerings.

Remember a few years back, when the Iphone finally got picture messaging capabilities and sooo many people thought it was the greatest thing ever? Well, in this case, RIM has been doing this for a while, but Microsoft just made it better. I don't think it is being positioned as a new and innovative feature, but rather a much improved experience, which is what the Mango update is all about. If you (not you specifically) haven't gotten a glimpse of Mango yet, you will be interested to know that several of the updates center around improved user experience and is turning out to be a rather nice (although catching up in a lot of ways) OS. Kudos to Microsoft for listening to customers and making the effort.
