Mail manners
Mail-bombing the whole company, including someone's bosses, rarely works whether you are selling, requesting a meeting, or asking for a similar item. Your boss should trust you to filter and respond to such requests in a polite and timely manner. I have had similar experiences -- and the names of the over-contacters stick in your head, for sure.

Salesman shoots self in foot
Wow, that is one over-eager sales rep doing everything possible to sabotage himself. The lack of email etiquette is startling.

No metrics
Seems like the grumpy guy has no metrics to show the rest of the functional areas - when you get this type of email do not waste your time or my time. It is 2014 the era of noise is even greater than ever. Start letting the metrics do the talking and preempt these bombs. Time to start delivering on the service that matters not the noise. Stop complaining!
