"Take it offline" can't be emphasized enough, imho. Expand that advice to client communication, or cross-team communication, etc. Learning to sense when it's time for a call is a really good skill to have.

An imperfect signal that it's time to walk over for a face-to-face or give a call is if someone's kind of stressing out and the email you're writing to try to assuage a concern is hitting 2-4 paragraphs in length. And you're spending 30 minutes trying to be very specific and clear in your language.
