How many email accounts do you have and how frequently do you check your emails? I have 3 email accounts out of which I check only one regularly. I keep checking my accounts for new mails every 15 minutes. Since i am online almost the whole day so I can afford to check my personal mails quite often.

I only have 2 email accounts. One for work and the other for personal use. My work email is opened the entire time I'm working. I usually check my personal email after work and every so often until bed time. My work email also comes to me on my blackberry so it's like 24 hours a day.

I usually check my email every minute.:) Unless I am asleep and not with the PC. I always check my email because I receive a lot of emails everyday and always send a reply to each sender.:) That's how busy my inbox is!

I have about 4 email accounts and I check them once at least everyday. During the day I do not have any access to internet as I'll be attending classes in college. Once I come home, I open all the 4 accounts simultaneously and check them. It'll be on till say about 1030 in the night, that is till I sleep. Though I don't get any important mails everyday, I get quite a number of forwards, some of which are funny, some are interesting and some are really meaningful.

Whenever I'm online I turn on the email notification,and while I'm working on the computer,the notification box pops on when I have new email.I have 2 email addy,one for work and the other for home.I guess since the notification is on,I check my emails throughout the day when I'm on the computer.

Thats a good way to keep a track of received mails without checking them every two minutes. I think I should turn on my email notification alert too. Thanks for sharing. Happy mylotting!!

Well, I check about 4-5 times a day. Per day I get a lot of emails from work place, friends and others. I also get some important communication with some peoples and its must for me to check at least 4 times a day. But in non-busy days I check for a couple of times. Usually in weekend I mostly check emails only once a day, since I am not much engaged in works in weekends. But I have 3 different email accounts and I constantly getting some updates and informations from work in all the 3, so I usually check 4 times in all the 3 emails.

I have two accounts, and I checked them everyday. I rarely checked emails though in the office hence most of my emails is not related to work. I rarely don't entertain non related office activities to my office time.

I used to have an e-mail I used all the time, but I made a new one (it came with the domain of my website), and now I use that one instead. I log on every once in a while on the other one just to check old e-mails I might be getting as many people still haven't accepted my new e-mail as the one I use. =P I use Mozilla Thunderbird with my current e-mail and check my messages every day.

I try and keep up with my emails for the most part well that use to be the case until I went on a 2 week vacation and came back to 3k emails. I just can't check them fast enough to get caught up and I delete most of them b/c its been so long. Today I'm doing pretty good at getting them down but I know I have alot more work to do and for Christmas eve and Christmas day I won't be on here.
