"that clever snoozing feature requires that Orchestra maintain a cloud server backend for the app"

I'm not sure why a server is required for this. Seems like it could be done just as easily on the client.

OTOH, if they provide some kind of POP/IMAP bridging service, that might require a server.

I agree that at least some aspects should be 100% feasible within an app.

Mail inbox client database. By default it shows all messages.
Add "mailbox" extension.
Now you can use gestures.
Swipe to delete, message moved to trash.
Swipe to snooze, message hidden for x hours.
Etc.
