Email best practice
Are you aware of email etiquette?
Did you know that the following are all bad email practice?
- Logging in as someone else - you should not know anyone elses passwords - Use the Delegate option
- You should never give others your password - Use outlook permissions.
- Leaving the subject blank - Always include a relevant subject. This applies to mail that you reply to or forward too
- Typing in capital letters - this is considered to be shouting
- Sending emails to a distribution list detailing when you are going to be away from the office - Use the Out of Office feature
- Send emails to an entire organisation that is relevant only to a few staff
- Storing out of date mail and never deleting them or the attachments
- Use of quirky and difficult to read fonts in an email
- Replying to all, instead of just to the sender
- Marking everything you send as high importance
- Putting read receipts on all mail that you send. This increases email traffic.
- Printing emails to remind you to do something - Use flags or drag the email to your task list
- Sending an email with your change of details - Use an autosignature
- Sending mail with typing or spelling errors - Use the spell checker
