Email Etiquette III

Written by Kathie M. Thomas

Continued from page 1

Not long after I started getting a lot of emails from this supplier, all withrepparttar same message (autorespond). I'd sent her a few messages some days before about a computer problem a client was experiencing. After around 75 of these messages I rang and left a message on her pager. 150 more emails and I rang again. Her business partner rang and said he was heading back to their office to see what was happening. More emails.

My supplier rangrepparttar 109561 following morning sounding very sheepish. She hadn't thought aboutrepparttar 109562 consequences of an auto respond linked with a read receipt. In her defence, she'd been very tired and was working late. Every time my computer logged another of her responses it sent back a read receipt and her autoresponder sent another reply to my read receipt, autorespond, read receipt, autorespond, read receipt, autorespond.......... getrepparttar 109563 picture? I had some idea of what might be happening but could not stoprepparttar 109564 process. All I could do was block her email address at my end until she woke up to what was happening.

Just thought you might appreciate what can happen if read receipt, and auto respond are used together without thinking as to why you would do that. Of course, if you use them separately you are unlikely to run into this kind of trouble.Next month I'll touch on usingrepparttar 109565 Blind Carbon Copy (BCC) field andrepparttar 109566 use of backgrounds for your emails.
