For all those who like to have an online persona, having to deal with a daily onslaught of emails is considered as part of the package. Depending on how seriously your customers takes their online presence, a user can be bombarded with a gazillion emails of anything and everything ranging from news, sports and entertainment websites, subscriptions, special offers, emails from family and friends, and then of course, how can we forget spam, the pain in our side and the reason behind most of our virtual constipation.

Dealing with all of this plus knowing that you won’t be able to get back to most of your customers in a timely manner is something that we have all grown used to and have learned to accept by now.
