Blrg. Having real time email conversations is frustrating, esp because I use POP3 and have Thunderbird set to only pull email when I explicitly tell it to.

One of the reasons I still have a lot of fondness for Email is that in many ways its like writing a long form letter. But if your message can be contained in 1-2 sentences please use signal or matrix or XMPP or IRC or one of the gazillion other chatting applications on the market.
