Don't abuse the !
I agree that you shouldn't put high priority on every single message just because you are the president's secretary, but there are legitimate reasons to add a high priority flag to some emails. If I have data due to the state and I haven't been able to get in touch with you any other way, I'll throw the ! on an email because it IS important. The high priority ! should only be used for truly important things though or the ! will just get ignored. (like the boy who flagged high priority?)
