Lots of email when you come back from your professional conference?

Don't forget your e-manners.  Here's a good list from CBS News, although I have seen suggestions that run counter to these keys.  For example, some people say that you should  never respond with just a thanks message.  What do you think?

9 keys to email etiquette
1. Reply -- No matter what. Acknowledge promptly that you received a message. If no particular response is required, just say "thanks." If you own an "action item" but can't get to it for a while, let the sender know you saw the message and estimate when you expect to reply. But don't let mail pile up in your inbox without acknowledging its receipt.

2. If you're on the CC line, don't reply. There are exceptions to the rule, of course, but you're on the CC line for a reason -- and that reason is "for information only." Let the folks on the "to" line do their job, unless someone specifically invites you into the conversation.
