Explore the status of Mailbox Structures

In the early 1980’s, when I was researching email, I was introduced to the concept of mailbox structures by Murray Turoff and Roxanne Hiltz. They described structuring as tailoring the computer-based communication process around a particular group or application. This concept was explored in great depth by John Bowers and John Churcher in the Cosmos project in the late 1980’s. However, I’ve lost touch with the topic. It would be fun to explore what, if anything, has been done with the concept since then.
