14 Email Etiquette Rules Every Professional Should Know

EmailEmails went from being a high tech novelty to a revolutionary method of communication that has changed the way we do business. Although email has become a primary method of communication at work, that doesn’t mean everyone has figured out the proper etiquette.

Emails aren’t the place to try your hand at comedy (leave that for the weekend). Remember this is work and sometimes jokes are inappropriate or don’t come across the right way when written. There is probably a bigger chance it falls flat than succeeds. Same for exclamation points!!!  Use them as needed, but less is always a better choice.  Remember, this is a business correspondence – you aren’t texting your friends about your after-work plans.
