I also get hundreds of emails a day and I've learned how to tune out  
messages not of interest. But I have no objection to tuning the

No problem. When a project is just starting, it might make sense to  
"overcommunicate" but I have no issues with tuning the notifications  
to achieve a balance.

So I won't tweak anything for a while and we can see how others react.
