Completely GMailed

Over the holidays I finally got sick of dealing with SLU’s email quotas and am now forwarding all of my work email to my GMail account with “slu” labels attached. It seems to be working well so far; the only thing I miss is being able to use a different work signature at the end of my messages automatically. Nonetheless, I think I need to do more to get my email intake under control, as it’s a real productivity killer.

SLU email sucks

At the moment, the email system at SLU is pretty much choked, with no sign of a solution coming any time soon (and, no, ITS throwing more money at the problem is not a solution, it's a stopgap). I think it’s time for a replacement.
