Email Throughput

To get technical work done, I sometimes let my inbox fill up beyond what makes my comfortable. Today, that caught up with me, but I plowed into it and handled it like a man:

  • Handled 206 incoming emails (filed, deleted or dealt with in some other way):
    • Started with 47 emails in my inbox
    • Received 177 emails
    • Ended with 18 emails in my inbox
  • Sent 92 outgoing emails

I don’t normally track such things, so I can’t say if that’s a lot or a little, but it sure seemed like a lot to me. <whew>
