Abstract: Email communication is becoming a burden for many employees and the way email is handled is far from efficient [5]. Employees are overwhelmed by the volume [4], lose important items [6], and feel pressured to respond quickly (often within seconds [3]). The major research in this field is trying to solve these problems by designing and building better email systems through understanding email usage [5]. Although these systems will probably improve email communication, would going back to basics provide, at worst, an interim solution?
