Speaking to the Observer, Sinclair confirmed that despite being as active in business as ever and a computing pioneer, he doesn't do email:
"I'd much prefer someone would telephone me if they want to communicate. No, it's not sheer laziness – I just don't want to be distracted by the whole process."
While this might seem like an extreme example, it is one way of avoiding email overload, and a reminder that you should choose your communications medium carefully before hitting that send button. If you are sticking with email, then brevity and the EOM tag are also useful. Thanks Alex!
