I've been operating on an unofficial inbox zero methodology (not following the 43 folders system) for quite a while. Right now there are 0 email in my inbox. Stuff gets assigned a task in iCal, or taken care of immediately. Coincidentally I was going to do a post on my system today... I'll get that up soon :)

I agree with a lot of the GTD stuff, but the e-mail handling is not a place where we see eye to eye. Those 2 minute e-mails all add up to constant distractions and I know too many people that just end up with an ever growing "for later" folder of stuff that eventually gets ignored.

Alex, have you tried the GTD (getting things done) concept of email management. Basically the rules are: 1) If you can do it in 2 min or less, then just do it; Otherwise - delete the email; - delegate the email; - file the email for later; - assign the email to a place (@computer, @phone, etc.) It seems to work for me most of the time... At the same time, you have your priorities in line. The balancing act is when business is good lean on customer service, when business needs to grow put sales front and center. Dont create hard and fast rules, because any growing business is never static in its needs.
