This paper reports ongoing investigation into the use and role of paper-mail communications in domestic environments. It uses ethnografivcally informed data to analyse how paper-mail supports various social roles within the home, particularly a division of labour whereby women tend to be largely responsible for what may be called 'manging at home'. Implications for the future of paper-mail are cinsidered, as well as suggestions how email tools may be designed to reflect the patterns of social organisation within the home.
