I don't see anything wrong with this, but I also don't see the need
for a TODO. Do you need to be reminded to check email?  You could just
make a headline, and clock on that.  Clocktables (or, maybe,
clocktable view in agenda mode) could narrow down e.g. time spent
reading email in one week.

I guess you would still have to think about comfortable ways to find
the right file/buffer and clock in there.
