We do almost everything via email around here and deliver almost
everything via attachments. What aren't attachments, we place on a
shared network drive and send an email with the drive URL.

I simply copy him on the email for anything I want him to be aware of
or anything I think he should know, and I send to him about 10 to 20
emails a day. What he doesn't care, he deletes...what he does, he
files. I also keep a copy of EVERY email I've ever sent or received
(except delivery receipts) since I'm here. The most current 7 days in
my Inbox online, past that, a folder on my local drive.

I also use them as reminders for me if Im asked about anything with
which I'm involved.

If I'm asked to do something by someone not in my team, when I send
it back, my boss gets CC'd.

By doing this, I have not been asked once what I'm doing, and I
started here last August.
