no, but that's certainly not business-related. :-P

Depends on the situation.

For the most part, if someone replied to *my* emails that fast, that'd mean I'd be able to get some stuff done faster, and that would be fabutastic.

in a social situation, i would be freaked out.

if you're e-mailing a co-worker... then it doesn't matter.

Response Time:

5 mins = not weird
5 secs = "you freakin' whack-job"

Sometimes people get annoyed if I don't reply within 5 minutes. But no, quick replies are never weird. Unless a very complex question was asked, in which case a quick reply would indicate you didn't put much thought into it. :)

I think it depends. If you're CONSTANTLY replying to EVERYTHING within 5 minutes, it means you're spending all your time checking email. That's kinda weird. But if it's just normal old email flow and sometimes it's within 5 minutes, that's fine.
