An email, as an electronically delivered message, has the capacity to be used as an effective & productive workplace tool. On the other hand, as a written message, an email can occasionally has the unfortunate ability to be misinterpreted by the reader.

2. Reply immediately or create deadlines
3. File/Organise
4. Delete irrelevant emails

This is your "heading"

Ensure it is relevant to email content

Make it easy to file & refer to for recipient
Subject line - make it meaningful

What does the reader know about the subject? How much detail?

What do you want them to do?

"consider your relationship with the recipient/s"
Greeting & Sign Off
Reply to urgent emails instantly - if not let the recipient know you will get back to them

Use flags to schedule email deadlines

Use rules (email tool) if applicable

"Think before you write and edit before you send"
eg. Contract for Project XYZ
Use a persons name in your greeting and spell correctly

Respond in the same way they have signed off "Mr Smith"
Sign off relevant to the tone of your email. eg. don't use "yours sincerely" if it is a casual email

Use appropriate signatures
An email should be clear, concise & to the point, with enough detail to ensure the tone is not overly blunt.

A suggestion for composing an effective email, is:
Emails are just that - a message
State the message clearly

Advise on the action you require

Elaborate on any details

Mention any attachments
Write quickly, follow your plan and get your thoughts documented

Use concise, clear language

Do not edit while drafting

Proof read for spelling, grammatical & punctuation

Ensure you have relayed your message clearly so the read understands

Check again who you are sending to - do they need to know?
The cost of non-work related, or non-productive emails to any organisation can be huge.

Managing and prioritising your emails is an important skill in creating a maintainable workload of emails.
