Ideal to use four or fewer lines. Provides ways to “find” you other than replying to the email message. People can trace you even if your message was forwarded. Spacing : Spacing Spacing the Greeting: Use a double space between the greeting and message. Spacing the Message Body: Sentences within a paragraph are single spaced Use a double space to separate between paragraphs. Do not indent the paragraphs. Use a double space between the last sentence and the closing. Spacing the Closing: Use double space between the closing and the beginning of signature block. Use single space within the signature block. Subject Line : Subject Line How do you ensure that your email is opened? By using a good choice of wording in the subject line. What is the purpose of the subject line? To allow the reader to see at a glance what the message is regarding. It serves as gatekeeper, determining whether the message is viewed by the recipient. How important is the subject line? The subject line is vital! It’s arguably the most important line you write in an email. Replying to Email : Replying to Email Two ways to reply: Maintain the “thread”. Use this to reply to the message. Create a new message. Use this when addressing a new topic. 2 reply buttons: “Reply”: When you press the “Reply” button, the response goes only to the original sender. “Reply All”: When you press the “Reply All” button the response goes to all the people who received the original message. This is only an option if the mail was “CC’d” to others apart from you. CC’s : CC’s CC’s: stands for Carbon Copy: Decide who needs to get a carbon copy. Sending every email to your superiors to create an impression will only create irritation. Multiple Recipients: When sending group emails: Group all people in the same category under one name. When creating a mail only the name of the group will be visible in the “To” line. This provides privacy to the recipients. Forwarding : Forwarding Disadvantages of Forwarding: Violation of privacy Too many addresses make the message cumbersome 2 options regarding forwarded messages: Forward the message after deleting the list of addresses Copy the information and paste it into a new message window.
