Are you on too many genealogy mailing lists? I was beginning to think I was. Reading the constant barrage of messages was taking time from my research. In my case, I set up email filters so the mailing list messages go into separate folders insted of my main inbox. Then I can read the messages when I want to and not have them coming in every hour or so.
And there were a few lists I unsubscribed to. One only has so much time.
It might be worth your while to be selective about what lists you are on.
