Treatment for Email Addictions

Mary McKinney at Successful Academic has a great series on managing email. Now I don't know about you but my multiple accounts are constantly stealing huge amounts of my time. LOL And sadly I seem to give it more time then I should. Email, like any work, will suck up as much time as you give it.

Check out Mary's series:
Email Addictions
Email Addictions - Part II
Email Addictions - Part III

Here's a sample from Part III: 

3) Create clear, firm email boundaries for students at the beginning of each semester.

Set up a schedule, similar to office hours, for answering student emails. At the beginning of the semester, preferably both verbally and in your syllabus, inform students that you receive so many email requests that it typically takes you a day or two to respond. Then try to stick with a set schedule for responding to student emails. Set up a folder in your browser and only reply to requests at set times that you have scheduled in your day planner. This will allow you to be responsive to students but to avoid being at their beck and call. Having a student email schedule will also put a halt to the irritating experience of having desperate students email you at 11pm the night before a test is planned or a paper due. If you have announced and enforced a set schedule, students will no longer assume that you will reply to all last minute, electronic questions or pleas.
