5 Email Tips That Will Save You Time and Embarrassment

Give the email your undivided attention. If you can’t respond right away, let the person know when they can expect to hear back from you.

Save the distribution list for last. This will help you avoid sending out an incomplete thought or selecting the wrong individuals.

Take care with those you copy. Think twice before hitting “reply all,” and only copy people who need to be in on the conversation.

Check attachments. Insert any documents – and confirm that they’re the right ones – as soon as you refer to them in the memo.

Don’t hit “send” when you’re angry. E-mailing when you’re angry is never a good idea. Give yourself time to cool down before responding.It may be better to speak in person.
