Even on days when I’m not able to compose any email, I find I’m still accessing email as a record. It’s decade(s) of information and tens of thousands of messages.
How much was something supposed to cost? When is that person supposed to arrive? Did I end up sending that invitation?
Even if I don’t have the chance to actually write or respond to requests, it’s great to have email search as a tool to look up info. I can’t same the same for Facebook messages or posts, or other types of messaging services.
