I keep coming back to the idea that there must be a better way to handle email. No matter what I do, and even with the aid of TextExpander for faster replies, it just eats into so much of my day. Even two hours of emailing per day equates to ten hours per week, which is more than a whole day of actual work. Something has to change. It's ridiculous.So in the next couple of weeks I'm going to move all of my email to Gmail (finally) and go to town with creating a few intelligent rules that can — to a point — send out canned responses that take the onus off me. Will it work? Will it come across as impersonal? Possibly. But email is taking over my life and I just can't stand it anymore.
