I will have extremely limited email access (not bringing my laptop) and no phone. I think I will just delete all emails received while I am away without reading them (and my out of office message will say that). Likewise I am going to turn off my voice mail on my cell phone so no one can leave me messages. Should be an interesting experiment.
