I run a business, but a shitload:
Stakeholder communications (landlords, suppliers, accountants, Insurance, etc)
Informal communications with external entities (regulators, IRS, etc)
I'm on a volunteer board that is spread out over the state and it is the only way we communicate.
Email is still very important part of my professional life. I could probably do without in my personal life, but without all the online accounts stuff, it would be tough.
