@QueenOfSerendip:  Are your questions urgent issues that need to be addressed prior to your first day? If not, then I would stop emailing her. I’m not in HR, but I’ve hired employees before and, as a supervisor, I don’t mind a little contact with my future employee during that time period (it shows you are excited) but I’m also busy with lots of other things. If you have questions that absolutely MUST be answered before you start, I’d either coordinate directly with someone in HR or save them all and email them all together, not as you think of them.

@QueenOfSerendip:  Some contact is appropriate.  But try to save your questions and send all at once.  If you are emailing and/or calling every day you are likely to come off as “high maintenance” and that’s not the foot you want to start on.  If you absolutely need to know, try and direct your questions to HR.  As an HR Coordinator I know I’m more used to dealing with all of the pre-employment/on-boarding questions than the managers are so I have more patience for it.  If the questions are not pressing, write them down and just go through them during your orientation process after you start.
