I could not work without email. It's my favorite form of communication. I hate the phone. It's intrusive and no records remain (you didn't tell me that).
That's how I've always worked. I was rather surprised when I found out the number of people who do all their email on the web.
In my case, I'm running a business and I have Mac Mail set up with all my business and personal addresses and folders that everything goes into. I also have it set to delete from the server immediately. I feel more secure that way.
