Here is a job opening for an email consultant:
This consultant will be a member of the team managing the Commonwealths email environment. The consultants primary responsibilities include on-going administration of the MS Exchange Environment, Tier 2 support, backups and tape rotation. Additional Comments * The position requires the consultant to work both first and second shift on a two-week rotation. Must live within commuting distance of Harrisburg. Active Directory + MS Exchange combined experience. MS Windows Server/MCSE 2003 big bonus as they are upgrading the environment. Candidate will be joining an Elite MS Professional team supporting.

Of course being an email consultant doesn't have to be so complicated as the above "duties" state. You could simply be the one in charge of answering a company's (or individual's) email.
A lot of websites have built up a subsribers' list and simply have more subscribers than they can handle and they need someone to take over the responsibility. I also saw some information about how an email consultant was needed to help go through a site's email inblox just to be able to distinguish their spam mail from legitimate business mail.
It just goes to show you that there are all types of opportunities out there for people.
