Like many, I get an overwhelming volume of email. Since there are recurring patterns, I decided to set the auto-responder to deliver the message below. If you have any feedback on it, I'd welcome it.
Auto-responder Out-of-Office Message
With 100s of inbound email per day, it's impossible for me to be effective and individually respond to emails. I hope the following will expedite you achieving the result you had hoped when you sent me the email.
Business partners & Family/close friends: I'm doing my best to unclutter my inbox so I can respond to you as quickly as possible. Feel free to re-send the email with "priority" in the Subject line if you don't hear back from me in a timely manner...
