From Fast­Com­pany: You’re about to go on vaca­tion, so you duti­fully set up the classic “Out of the office, will reply to your message when I get back” email auto-responder. While that auto-reply gives you a socially accept­able pass to do nothing about most incoming email for awhile, it doesn’t make the nagging feeling that you’re missing the one or two really impor­tant items go away. So, while you’re at a resort in some Carribbean paradise, you have to surrep­ti­tiously check your email for any ticking time­bombs while your spouse shoots you disap­proving looks. Which is to say that, by and large, email auto-respon­ders don’t work. · Go to The Art of the Email Auto-Responder Message (I’m Away From the Office Until…) →
