When to use email - or not?

Ok, the book this is taken from is a few years old, but, it's not that old. Looks like the author is pretty oldfashioned though.

It's a weird paragraph. What it's basically saying is that he doesn't like email (maybe what he's really trying to say is that they are the Devil's work??!) and he thinks noone should use them. Who cares? I think he could have used the space for something more useful...

From this book.
