Set an out-of-office responder

If you're going to try inbox infinity, it can help to set a permanent out-of-office responder that lets people know what to expect from you.

Should they expect a response from you at all? If so, when? Is there someone else they should contact if they have a specific inquiry? Maybe if you get the same question over and over again, your out-of-office responder could include the answers to some frequently asked questions so you can be more productive without getting bogged down in emails.
