Could You Go Email-Free Once a Week?

An NPR story delves into the double-edged nature of email, and profiles one firm, U.S. Cellular, that’s absolved its workers from having to look at (or respond to, obviously) company emails on Fridays.

Let’s hear from our mail-savvy readers, though: would a day off from email feel like a blessing, or leave you feeling entirely disconnected?
