Question of the Week: What Are Your Email Pet Peeves?

As outlined in the new feature, Proper Email Netiquette, a company should implement email etiquette rules for two reasons: professionalism and efficiency. The first Netiquette tip stressed the importance of using the BCC: field when emailing large groups. This helps to avoid two things that can happen when adding a large amount of email address in the To: field: everyone using “reply all” in response and giving out all of the recipients’ email addresses without their permission. unfortunately, it can be easy to forget your e-manners when pressed for time or when sending mass amounts of communications.

What are some email habits that often bother you and what are some ways to correct them? Let us know by leaving a comment below.

It may sound petty, but I really get irritated with poor spelling, grammar, etc. If you really don't know any better, then I guess you"re doing the best you can. I know people have received various levels of education, but some mistakes are made through not being careful. If you want to be understood (and not misunderstood), make sure your communication is clear and error-free. (And, of course, I fully expect someone to find an error in this short statement and call me out.)
