Why wouldn't you wait until you take a break to reply to emails? You're choosing to switch over during a "coding binge" when you don't need to.



I can't speak for the author, but sometimes the emails contain messages like "Major emergency - stop what you're doing right now" where, if I didn't get the email until 30 minutes later, could be problematic.


I have a filter, which pops up a notification only for certain emails. Those from my boss.


so all of your emergencies must come through your boss... that would not work for me
