Always shut down email when not actively using it

Always shut down your email when you're not actively reading/responding to it. Email is an insidious time and attention sucker. It prevents any real work from getting done because you're always switching over briefly to see if anything came in - which is a break in concentration to start with - and on the many occasions where something does come in, then it's game over for whatever you were attempting to accomplish before.
