When I receive new bugmails, I would like my email client to show a high
priority mark next to those that are notifications of a bug being assigned to me.

My plan is to first fix bug 69399 giving the New status its own category.  Then 
at some point in the future, I'd like to give the ability to instead of just 
saying 'Yes' or 'No' to bugmail, give choices of:
( ) No
( ) Low Priority
(*) Normal Priority
( ) High Priority

Of course, that UI is far from complete, but that's the general idea.
Depends on: 69399

too bad we can't let people upload css policies. but if we can tag bugs w/ 
statuses then can't they use filters to set priorities?

Some e-mail clients would let you say:
If <Subject> contains "] New: " then <Set Priority to High>

I don't know if Mozilla does, but I know (please don't laugh :) MS Outlook does.

But in the end, I'd still like to be able to do make it a server side pref to
set priority on certain bugmail (based on filtering category).  After
product/keyword/etc. watching is in place, that will allow you to "watch" the
patch keyword and have any bugmail regarding that keyword come in as high priority.
This should be tacked onto the email prefs.  Each type of change has various
options - high, normal, low, not interested.

We need to balance the flexibility people want with the need to not further
complicate the interface for novices.  My suggestion is as follows.

The user has one or more notification classes.  Each notification class has a
name, a priority, and maybe other stuff.

If there is only one notification class set up (which is the default for new
users), they will receive a checkbox as they do now, which distinguishes from
receiving no mail and receiving mail as per the notification class.

If they have multiple notification classes set up, they receive a drop down box
choosing between all the notification classes, plus no receiving.

Notification classes aren't just for priorities, they also appear in mail
headers and can be filtered upon.  In particular, they are a solution to
allowing filtering in the presence bulk changes in one email (bug #26943).

The whole idea is discussed over at bug #14137.

Both Outlook and Mozilla allow you to change the priority of an email based on
subject or body text. So just set priority to high if the body contains 

Suggest WONTFIX, therefore. This would complicate the email prefs UI, which is
complex enough.

Bugzilla 2.20 feature set is now frozen as of 15 Sept 2004.  Anything flagged
enhancement that hasn't already landed is being pushed out.  If this bug is
otherwise ready to land, we'll handle it on a case-by-case basis, please set the
blocking2.20 flag to '?' if you think it qualifies.

Yeah, we don't need a UI to define the priority of bugmail, especially when the email client can do it itself based on the user wishes.
