Accidental hermit - when should I reply to messages?

I've been chronically ill for a few years where health dictated when I could answer people, and now that I'm mostly back at work, I am baffled by what feels like a shift in asynchronous communication etiquette. It used to be phone/text/email/letter in urgency, but people now expect a same-hour reply for everything, and I wind up with fifty conversations simultaneously. People will have different expectations but I'm looking at what's broadly accepted for 30 year olds online/offline in a modern city. [more inside]

How do I download a folder of emails in Hotmail to my mac?

I've been using Hotmail for ages and I have a bunch of important emails going back two years which I need to organise and print out. Hotmail isn't very good at opening up multiple emails or printing them out so I'd like to download them to my macbook. They are currently sitting in their own folder in my Hotmail account. How do I download this folder and what software should I use?

What is thisJ

A person I correspond with ends every email with the letter J. At first, I thought it was just a typo, but now I see it's consistent over dozens of emails. Now I'm curious if it's a thing, or if maybe it's some artifact of some unencoded character, or what. [more inside]

Sign Up Here One Click In Real Life

Looking for a user friendly way to let people sign up for an email newsletter at a live event. Other than forcing them to enter their emails right into the right website, how can I simplify the current process of a person writing their email down, and a different person writing it into a spread sheet, and then someone else uploading the emails into the newsletter system? Is there an iPad app for this? [more inside]

anonymous emails

Looking for a simple arrangement for tenants in my building to communicate w/ each other, and to the Owner as well, anonymously, if they wish. We need to address some issues. Users would need to have the ability to post w/out revealing their id's; and Owner can view, or the posts could be sent to him. Is there something I could set up, anonymously, and let loose?
