E-mail and Blackberries are the worst enemy of successfully enjoying leave. Nobody pays attention to your "out of office" messages and far too many people know our BB numbers (they can be found in the GAL anyways).
In the days of communications by memos, letters and face-to-face conversation, we didn't have to worry about coming back to 100-150 unread messages after a few days off during prime time (AKA not block leave). Another leave killer is that damned "Read Receipt" feature that allows people to instantly know when you are back at your desk (or worse, have your BB in your hand) so they can call you about the e-mail they know you just read seconds ago.
