Email – Rant 458

I saw the phenomenom where people do project management with emails. They claim „I don’t need anything else than an email client on my machine“. Obviously in many cases this is Outlook. Srsly?
Really important things get documented *only* in emails, credentials are stored only in emails.
Emails are used to prove facts because of something somethings has said once upon a time.
I know, I am always upset about everything, but this annoys me so much. I am not facing this situation. But I did. In my case, email is just one of the many possibilities to communicate with other people. Nothing more. I use this in very rare cases when I have no other possibility to reach somebody.
Important things get documented in wikis, issue management is done with a ticket system like Jira or Github Issues and for chatting with teammates I use IRC or Skype.
