5 tips for Better Email

Posted by medliorator on January 30, 2008

  • Use subject-line protocols to speed communication:
    • a.) No reply needed – NRN
    • b.) Thank you – TY
    • c.) Need response by date and time – NRB 10/30 3:00 pm
    • d.) Use subject line for whole message: Meet 10:00 10/30 Okay? END
  • Keep e-mails short. Most should be no more than 1-10 sentences. Communicate your main point in the first sentence or two. Don’t make readers work because you don’t have time to focus.
  • Don’t deliver bad news in an e-mail message.
  • After two rounds of problem-solving on e-mail, pick up the phone.
  • If you can deal with it in 2 minutes, do it.

Incredible Gmail Tip

Posted by medliorator on December 20, 2007

If you use Gmail, here is a useful trick you probably didn’t know …

Let’s say that your email address is ‘GeorgeBush@gmail.com’, basically everything sent to any of the following email addresses will be forwarded to your primary email.

  • Ge.orgeBush@googlemail.com
  • G.e.o.r.g.e.B.u.s.h@gmail.com

you can place as many dots as you want.

 

you can embed random text to your email ID using ‘+’ sign. That is to say ‘GeorgeBush+anythingyouwant@gmail.com’ can be used as your email address, as well.

 

When signing up for some website, say thatwebsite.com, you can add thatwebsite to your Gmail user ID (eg. GeorgeBush+thatwebsite@gmail.com).

There are limits to use. Some websites won’t register addresses including “+.” Spammers will often ignore text following a “+.”
