I am writing the e-mail to offer you the answers to questions that we are expected to cover concerning e-mail etiquette. Provided that you already are familiar with the four questions, I am writing my answers to them. Please, see below:
- It is crucial to start your academic e-mail by addressing the person, for example, Dear Professor Jones, or Dear Mr. Jones. The business etiquette requires using a salutation, especially if the person you are writing to is a superior. You can use Dear Adam or Dear Alice if you are writing a message to your business contact.
- In case you forgot to include your signature in an academic e-mail message or in a business message, recipients may get a hard time looking for your contact details and scanning your previous messages. Be sure to include your full name, e-mail address, and phone number with every message you write.
- An academic or a business e-mail message you send out reflects who you are. Bad grammar, punctuation and misspelling can make a negative opinion of you. Therefore, taking grammar and spelling seriously is a must. Now everyone can easy use spell-checkers, for example.
- When formatting an e-mail message, try to avoid sophisticated formatting styles and fonts, which you could otherwise use in a text message. Choose a plain and a simple style and font. It will ensure that the recipient can read your entire e-mail message without any difficulty.
Thanks for your time.
Kind regards,Your name, e-mail address, telephone number
