Email Etiquette and Form:
1. Always fill out the
subject line. If you are
sending an email for the first time, identify yourself.
People will often delete emails from unknown senders thinking the
message contains a virus or is unsolicited ‘spam-mail.’
3. Begin the email with a
salutation followed by either a comma (,) or a colon (:).
For example, “Dear Ms. Borger:”
Keep your message brief and to the point.
When sending professional email, avoid odd fonts, colors, and images that
are distracting and use unnecessary storage space.
When sending an email, do not simply hit “reply” to an old message
that has nothing to do with your new message.
Create a new email—even if it means looking up the recipient’s
address—or erase the irrelevant information.
7. Always include a closing and a signature. Do not assume the recipient will be able to identify you solely according to your email address.
