Darwin 7 email tips

Chuck Martin has a set of 7 Tips for Getting of Control of E-mail at this week's Darwin Online

  1. If any subject or issue involves more than two e-mails, one party should call the other to resolve the issue by phone.
  2. No junk e-mail, no jokes.
  3. Only send relevant information, which is defined as just what the person needs to know.
  4. Limit CCs (which might be more appropriately named CYA).
  5. Don’t ping-pong with e-mail for a conversation; use the phone.
  6. Deal with it and delete it.
  7. Don’t read every e-mail as it comes in; handle them in batches.

Sounds like a good set of suggestions, many of which I've advocated before.
