Writing Email

While talking to a friend yesterday, we were discussing the whole concept of Email ettiquette. So many people use email but so few are taught how to really use it.

Of course, this morning, I found this article from Wired Magazine which has some great pointers. And the New York Times has this article which talks about the lack of emotion or tone of voice in emails.

And both Merlin Mann and Guy Kawasaki have posted about 5 Sentence Emails – a philosophy that no message will be more than five sentences long, rather than having large posts. I especially like Merlin’s “Emailarrhea” term.

If you know of other good “Email How To Guides” please post them in the comments.
