Written by Jane Deuber

6. Be Pleasant! Nobody like to receive boring, curt or rude e-mails. Begin your e-mail by addressingrepparttar recipient in a friendly, positive manner. When a pleasant attitude is conveyed through your e-mail message you build rapport more quickly.

7. Always reply as quickly as possible - Develop a good impression by responding to business related e-mails. The more promptly you can write backrepparttar 117153 better. Start withrepparttar 117154 oldest e-mail first.

8. Avoid Over Punctuation - Don't get caught up in grammar and punctuation, especially excessive punctuation. You'll see lots of e-mail messages where people put a dozen exclamation points atrepparttar 117155 end of a sentence for added emphasis. If something is important it should be reflected in your text, not in your punctuation. Exclamation points (called "bangs" in computer circles) are just another form of ending a sentence.

9. Back up your e-mail address book! - Windows-based users might try these steps to findrepparttar 117156 approariate files on your hard drive.

10. Use Plain Text Format - Formatting can be everything, but not in your e-mails. Plain text is best.
