Smart e-Mailing

Heed these tips before you click "send."

Don't e-mail messages you don't want others toread. It is less private and secure than sending letters. Infact, copies often stay in the computer system long after you thinkyou have deleted the message.

You don't want to be known as a "junke-mailer," so be careful who you send your messages to.The more junk you send, the more you'll be ignored.

Keep your e-mail short. Most folks find ituncomfortable--and difficult--to read long messages on screen.

Finally, don't let e-mail take the place of personalcontact. Many situations call for the more personal phone callor face-to-face meeting.
