How much do we depend on email?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Email has been down at my office for the past two days. Our tech guy is trying to determine the problem. It's driving me crazy not having access to email and made me realize how much I depend on it to communicate for work and for fun!

I go into withdrawls w/o my internet so I can relate!

I really hate not having the internet/email--its how I keep in contact with my family during the days when I'm at work and can't be on the phone!

If my email went down right now, I would go nuts because I've been waiting for an important email since yesterday. Usually, though, I don't really care because I don't usually do important convos through email.

most of my work is based thru email so when i loose email ( usually only really bad weather) its a PITA literally.

It's up and running again as of a few minutes ago. Now I'll have to spend the rest of the day getting caught up!

YEs, that IS a problem! We rely on it so much, that a couple of days without really stacks the inbox! I sometimes wonder how we managed before it!

Reasons I would die without my E-Mail

1. My Brother is in Afghanistan...
2. I live in the middle of nowhere and have no long distance (by choice & budget)
3. I have to contact my teachers and never know when they are in class to call.

Yep I definately depend on it for more than just fun (but that's nice too)

Not just e-mail - how about IM - I am dead without my IM.

I would go through withdrawls too!

I don't remember my life before email..... I'd be lost if I was without it now

I live thousands of miles away from my family and a lot of friends - I'd hate to go back to pre-email days.

Living abroad too, I rely on it for everything. I just came back from a trip where I had no email for five days and I was freaking out!

I love e-mail. I know I'm addicted and here is why. I ordered a new computer last week and I checked the status of my order at Gateway. It said "shipped". My reaction was "so where is the e-mail. My item has been shipped and your website said shipped as of 1:50 am this morning". Then, I did get an e-mail at 10:00 am the same morning with package tracking information. So, I tried to track the package. My reaction was "Come on FedEx......they gave the shipment to you. Now pick it up and enter your information so I can wait on my front porch!!"

Do I sound reliant on e-mail?

If I had to live without email I might as well be shot and buried.

I couldn't live without email either - do a lot of the cat sales through it!

I can't imagine how I'd get work done if I couldn't use email. I'd basically have to be on the phone all day, and since I feel like I'm already on the phone all day, productivity would def. be way down!

I get very upset when I have no access to the internet and email. Being in Korea, it is our lifeline to our families back home
