No surprise there. But too much of this good thing results in overloaded inboxes and overlooked e-mail.
Make sure your messages are well-received and read with these tips:
• Put your key point first, so it shows up in the recipient’s e-mail viewing pane. Follow with backup details.
• Avoid copying everyone or hitting “reply all.” Many people manage their inboxes by setting up an e-mail Rule that moves “cc’d” messages into a low-priority folder.
• Keep it brief. When you do send a long message containing background information, provide a brief summary first, rather than saying, “See below.”
• Include the required action and deadline in the subject line, when possible, so the recipient can scan for high-priority messages and search for it later. Example: “For your approval 12/27: XYZ budget.”
