Another disadvantage crops up when users get a high volume of messages and
don't agree on what communication should be expected to occur through E-mail
or how we should determine what to read. We're all guilty of deleting
messages without opening them. This is a valuable benefit of E-mail in many
situations, but can cause big problems if the sender distributes an
important message only be E-mail, thinking it will be read, and the intended
receiver blips it away.
