For yourself, as email facilitator-advocate, you should read
_Connections_ by Lee Sproull and Sara Kiesler.

[The next book by Lipnack and Stamps will also be on this topic.]

The basic organizational rule is balance -- don't have another
meeting without doing homework, don't do too much homework 
without having a meeting.  Since you still have recourse to 
face-to-face meetings with these people, learn how to use email
to make your RealTime together more productive.  Get people to
email out reports a reasonable space before meetings, etc.

Each team, and this board is no exception, will have to inch around
a bit in the saddle until comfortable.  That is to say, no rules
fit all groups.  But approach email as a complementary resource
and not a replica of face-to-face interaction and you will find
that the group is less boring to belong to.
