I agree that email is a beast. But getting the genie back in the bottle is even more of a beast.

For those of us on the sales side of the business, timing is everything and we all know buyers who send time-sensitive requests and avails off the clock. Having our emails linked to our Blackberry or smart phones make it more likely that we'll see sensitive communications close to the time of their arrival (depending on our alert settings. Personal emails get ignored until I'm in my personal zone.

I think the more practical way to deal with emails (or at least what's worked for me) is to be aware of what's populating the in-box and prioritize the responses. I agree that it's an insidious problem on the one hand, and on the other, it allows us to be more efficient if we prioritize our responses appropriately.
