Email "etiquette"

September 29, 2017

Some tips on office/commercial emails etiquette

 

  • Ask yourself if you would CC yourself, easy with the CC’s.  It spreads a conversation that the other party may not be ready to share yet.

  • BCC, sends a message about you to the person your BCC’ing

  • Assume that every email you send will be read aloud in court one day.  Be discrete, mind your P’s and Q’s.

  • If your message is less than 7 words, put it in the subject line.

  • Email signatures should not involve words of wisdom. Not Tony Robbins, Kath and Kim or your favourite line from Arnold or the Rock.

  • Unless you need something read immediately, don’t put in exclamation points.

  • But if it does need to be conveyed immediately, make a call.

  • Don’t ALL CAPS, STOP SHOUTING AT ME.

  • small caps isn’t ok, for everything either.

  • Don’t play around with the fonts too much, Arial, Calibri, Helvetica are pleasant on the eye.

  • Don’t use Verdana.
