If you don't spend a portion of your week sifting through and replying to emails, then you probably aren't reading this....For those of us that do, we can always stand to shave some time off of this chore.
Save up to an hour a day by using a system to decide what emails merit a response and what can be deleted.
When you read an email that requires you to write back, hit "Reply" before saving the blank email to your Drafts folder. Then set aside time each day to work through the drafts, composing and sending messages. By using this folder as a holding area for emails that require action, you'll remember what needs attending to without forcing yourself to do so as soon as you read it.
Now, no need to panic, when "you've got mail.."
