  • Taken into consideration that checking the incoming mails and acting on them might disturb what I am already doing and the context switching will make you loose focus.

    So your suggestion is not a bad idea at all.

    I can however ignore my mailbox and the little red counter in the dock, if I am programming or something.

    I can also postpone the mail processing if I am busy, so I just scan the subjects and senders and if it is not my wife or something extremely important I can go back to what I was doing. The situation is actually more that I just want to avoid is a 200 mails I need to go over and the mails clutter my overview of things and stress me out.

    The other day I found a mail with an assignment I had overlooked, luckily for me, I still got to respond in time, so the assignment could be closed in time.

    But your suggestion is good I will certainly consider it, closing the mail application does however also work for me :)
