I had attended a workshop on time management several years ago, and one of the suggestions was to delete your entire inbox when you return from vacation. The theory was that if something was truly urgent, that person would track you down. If not, it may have already gotten resolved and there's no need to hear about it - a quick status update from your team could be enough.

I've done this several times and it's always worked out well. It's funny how issues that people think are urgent sometimes resolve themselves.
