EMail - Rule of thumb: Write nothing in an email that you would not mind seeing tacked up on the office bulletin board.

  • Be careful about misspellings and incorrect grammar.
  • Use spell-check before you send any email.
  • Do not use slang.
  • Use jargon sparingly.
  • Be cautious about who will receive each email.
  • Think before you push the SEND button.
  • Set each email up in proper format - memo, letter, report, proposal.
  • Respond promptly to all messages.
