how often to you read emails?   Do you let them pile up for a month and then read them all in one go or read them every day or so

I try to keep on top of emails

I tried that, but keep slipping off the top of the server.

Margorie, I read emails as and when they arrive.

I have actually considered it, and this less than fullsome reply really does constitute a wholly comprehensive and accurate summation of my relationship to the receiving of electronic mail.

I read them as they come in.  Then decide if I have to action them straight away, or later in the day.  If there ever is a situation where I can't print what I need from it (because the printer doesn't work), or if I know that I can not respond till the next day, I mark it as un read to remind myself the next morning.  Or if I suddenly die overnight my colleagues can see it as un read and know that it needs dealing with.

OK ?

how can you leave emails for a month before reading them? they're usually pretty instantaneous things. i couldn't leave them that long. but then i do have my email up and running all the time.

Well a friend of mine whom I regularly email, said to me once that it is sometimes days before she looks at her emails
