I’ve been in the throes of e-mailing multiple professors at different institutions, so this has kept me glued to my e-mail multiple times a day trying to keep up. While corresponding with a graduate student and one school, she referred me to a friend who she thought would be more helpful with some of my questions, but the referral came with the warning that she doesn’t check her e-mail very often. That’s totally cool with me. It will be one less e-mail I feel the pressure to answer right away. However, I thought that was weird. Are there lots of people who don’t check their e-mail frequently? When I’m not at work, I check at least twice a day. When I am at work, the e-mail window stays open and I check it every time I walk by my computer. Am I abnormal? How often do you check your e-mail?
