* Fight inbox clutter. The total number of messages I sent today (instead of closing the loop with a visit, a phone call, or an IM) is indicated at the end of the subject line as (sent / quota).My quota, admittedly a constant in the code, is 10 messages/invites per day--and though there are days I exceed it, I think it's my average. I've also made this a public quest, explaining to people each time I follow up synchronously to an e-mail, that I'm stopping by because I think a conversation is a quicker way to resolve the issue than to respond with another e-mail.
We're using Outlook 2007, so I set up this VBA macro to remind me about my quotas. Tell me if you use it!
