emails automatically deleted on holidays, weekends, in evenings

What a concept. If nobody is there, call back some other time, if it is important. This is my mom's concept concerning a rotary phone on the wall. Apparently it is now Daimler Chrysler's as well. Why? Because if you answer everything constantly you never get away, can never relax, can not achieve a balance of work and non-work that is important for mental health and physical well being.  I hope this trend continues. The company politely notifies you that your email is being deleted because you contacted them after hours or during a holiday or weekend. Nobody is complaining. Perhaps this will begin a larger conversation about a better balance between work and non-work. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-28786117
