With e-mail, the fact that there's an e-mail on my screen gets my attention.

In person (speaking, not writing), if you have eye contact, you have them.  If 
you don't have eye contact, call their name, tap their shoulder, or you can say 
something... something that is more to the point; /HIqIm/, or /SoHvaD jIjatlh/,
