My Email Policy
I now receive more than 300 emails in a typical day and sometimes many more than that. While I do practice Inbox Zero as a way to stay on top of things and be a courteous colleague, it is simply not possible to respond to every email. Frankly, I think it is also not necessary. This means developing certain strategies and practices for dealing with email. Others before me have other such practices. These help us maintain sanity, and actually produce the type of creative output that is our expertise---we are human after all and do have a limited capacity for cognitive load on any given day. I employ an assistant to filter out and respond to certain types to emails that do not need me to read them. The assistant can be directly reached at eecs-corso-va@umich.edu for booking appointments, for example.

However, for the many dozens of emails that I need to see, here are my constraints. I empty my inbox once per week. I read email once per day near the end of the day. I reply to email as necessary and when I have the time within that day / week. The end result is that I reply to as few emails as possible and if you needed a reply from me and did not get it in a week (I am on a 2-3 day average lag), then you should call me. If it is urgent, you probably should call me. Thank you for your understanding.

In parting, there is a good amount of evidence that emails wastes a lot of our time. Consider not sending a mail before you send one.
