This question is related to my other question How to ask my supervisor to read my emails instead of asking me?
I used to believe as below and I expect the same from others as well.
- Reading my email is my responsibility.
- If I am getting so many emails or alert emails ( if working in production support), then I have to organize my emails.
- I have to read all emails or at least take a glance to decide that email is important or not.
Because, I should not miss any important information or I should not delay my action on urgent items.
I am working in IT for more than 10 years and this expectation was seemed ok and working till last year, so I was believing my belief and expectation are correct.
But after reading the answers & comments of my other question linked, It seems reading my own emails is not at all mandatory.
How much we are responsible to read our emails?
If someone or managers are getting so many emails which they cannot handle, then what is the point of sending emails to them?
Please note, these questions are coming from the frustration of repeating daily. And I do read my every email without fail.
