A real-time, programmatic ad exchange for in-email ads could certainly change the way email is delivered and perceived. It opens up an opportunity for brands to reach recipients who may have never agreed to receive email for their brand, but have for a different brand. Whether or not that will be well-received or if it is effective will be interesting to see.
