They’re arguably the worst thing that ever happened to mankind – auto replies. Join my fight to get rid of unremarkable out-of-office replies and other auto replies. To help, I’ve collected some great positive exceptions, starting with the one below. Let’s turn automatic into automagic.

As we’re all struggling to manage the flood of email, you might as well manage expectations with people who send you an email, like Maarten Mellemans does:

In an effort to increase productivity and efficiency, I limit myself to checking email only a few times a day. This approach hopefully results in shorter lead times with more focused and creative work.
I will try and respond to your message in a timely manner. However, if you need an immediate time-sensitive response, please don’t hesitate to call me.
