    Just sent one at 00.12... probably be a few more bits going out before I turn in for the night.

    I don't give the time any real thought. Its just when I get round to it and almost always they needed to have already gone out so I send as fast as I can when I have the time!

    Emails - I send out at random times, between 08:00 and 01:00. I may send them out between those times. I do not really think about it.

    Texts/phone calls - I will limit it to before 21:00 if I can. I had a response to a text at 00:22 last night.

    Gave up on emails long ago, found it too hard to keep up the address list and bored of people that never seemed to read them and claiming they never saw it.

    We just use our Facebook group plus telling the kids the week before. if there's something important I will usually text any that had the courtesy to let us know they couldn't make it that week.

    Any time I like, it's not a real time method of communication, it's more like posting a letter.

    My partner is a big fan of Boomerang for Gmail, means he can send an email at 1am but it'll get to the person at 9am. Then that takes away the expectation that the receiving person should be reading and replying to emails late at night.

    If you don't want to receive emails late at night turn your phone off or leave it downstairs - Simple!

    The morning before the meeting. I usually try not to leave it to the day before, but it's quite often Tuesday for a Wednesday meeting. Bit poor I know.

    Usually I send out emails on a Sunday evening when I tend to do my prep for the week, but I can send them out at any time. I feel sending emails out on the afternoon of our section meeting days would be too late.

    Email is an asynchronous form of communication. The primary benefit of asynchronous forms of communication is that you can send messages to people when it is convenient for you to do so, and they can read them when it is convenient for them to do so. Therefore, send them whenever it is convenient for you to send them, and let them decide when is convenient for them to read them.

    This exactly. The only thing I consider is whether I'm giving enough notice. The point of email is that you look at it when it's convenient. It's not occurred to me that I need to consider that anyone I'm emailing might be looking at emails when it's not convenient. I'm afraid I don't really think that that is my problem...
