4 tips on writing to-the-point emails

1. Include your phone number and mailing address in your signature. That way, others won’t have to request the information.

2. Provide “if-then” options. Tim Ferris, author of The 4-Hour Work Week, recommends avoiding the back-and-forth of a ­single-option message by writing, for example, “Bob can meet at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. or 2 p.m. Will one of those work? If not, please reply with three times that would.”

3. Always start with a greeting. It isn’t faster, but it’s more courteous.

4. Check Snopes.com before you waste time forwarding a chain letter. Nine out of 10 times, they’re bogus.
