I was listening to one of AW podcasts, haven’t been able to find it since, but the question came up about the “always on culture” and one contributor mentioned that they have an auto reply that there is a 10 day turnaround on emails and of clients want a reply within 24 hours they can pay for a subscription service and they will respond within 24 hours. Is this a realistic time frame and or service. Another contributor said they have an out of office saying that emails are checked maximum once per day and not to expect an immediate response.
Email are currently a big thorn in my side. I think I some auto reply explaining not to expect a reply to email because I don’t read them all which is actually the truth because I just don’t have the time.
How are other members managing their email replies?
Edit: Out of interest, how many emails do members receive on average per day?
