Always keep communications on Purestorm. That way an independent body has a record of all correspondence.

I Understand where you're coming from, I'm not a fan of email tennis, so after a shoot has been confirmed I pass on my email address and phone number and ask to be contacted via one of those. It's more practical aswell as it means I can reply when I'm away from the computer, and it helps to build up trust between me and the photographer/MUA/whoever too

Email in here. 

I find this reliable and easy.  You also know whether the other person has opened the mail. 

Try to avoid other sites unless I need to send a brief as I do not know if there is a way to send attachments on here.

Thats fine until something goes wrong and the site is unable to do anything about it as emails off-site are un-verifiable.

I assume this difficulty people are having is because they are running their lives from smart phones. Using portfolio sites from a normal computer cannot be easier.

I use a smart phone away from home and I have no issues in reading messages, if however my response needs to contain more than a few sentences I generally just reply to the message saying "thanks for the message, I'm away from home at the moment so will get back to you with a more detailed message on Tuesday/This evening/Tomorrow".

I don't generally get hundreds of messages a day though, although I have heard of others claiming to receive such high amounts in a short period of time so people who are that popular probably would struggle to remember or be bothered replying to everybody if their initial check was proving problematic.
