Email Etiquette

With the rise in popularity of text and instant messaging, basic etiquette is being forgotten. When composing emails (especially professional emails) be sure to keep some basic tips in mind.

Five Basic Email EtiquetteTips:

1. Salutations and Greetings: always include a salutation/greeting.

2. Subject Heading: always include a subject heading that describes the topic of the email.

3. Avoid All Caps: all caps indicates shouting or yelling and is considered impolite.

4. Attaching prior message: attach the last message and delete the prior message(s).

5. Forwarding emails: before forwarding someone's private email onto others, always ask permission first.
