Top 5 Effective E-mail “Dont’s


Top 5 Don’ts

5. Don’t ever type anything in ALL CAPS, even to get someone’s attention. If you need to catch someone’s eye with something important, put it in bold.

4. Don’t include your entire team or your boss on every e-mail you send. Be selective.

3. Don’t send large attachments unless absolutely necessary, especially to a mailing list or distribution list. If possible, upload your files to the cloud, such as DropBox or MemoPal and provide a link.

2. Don’t send e-mail when you’re emotional. If you’re responding to someone that has made you angry, save the message in your drafts folder until you can proof-read it more objectively, and then send the e-mail.

1. Don’t try to be funny, especially to a mixed audience. The chances of being misunderstood are astronomical.
