@crfe1272: You have to prioritize. Since I received about 300 emails a day and 78% had to be answerd almost immediately my boss ended up squarely at the bottom of the list. Besides most of the other 29 would probably have asked the same thing. Oh, and he had the adjacent cubicle to mine. This was probably the only time that year he spoke to me.
I had a boss once who would send me a email, then immediately come and find me wherever I was, stand there and tell me he sent me an email. That was my clue to return to my cube. He would follow me back there and stand behind me while I read his email. Then he would hand me a copy of the email. He's the PHB with an MBA. Scary!
