See my tie curl?

Yesterday at work, I sent an e-mail to one of our regulators at the water board asking for an extension to a well installation report that is due in December.

Today my project manager asked me to call the regulator to make sure he had received my e-mail.

He wasn't in.

So I left a voice mail asking that he call me to let me know if he received my e-mail.

...

Now I wonder if I should send an e-mail to make sure he listens to his voice mail and gets my message asking him to call me and let me know if he got my e-mail asking for an extension.

I think my program manager needs to grow pointy hair.

Email is always better when it comes to dealing with government entities. It leaves a paper trail, where as the voice mail is lost in that subtext/footnote of the 5th level of hell or nth space, can't remember which.
