Under number 3 i would add to set the automatic spell check under Options in Outlook.

COMMENT

I would caution the use of spell check though. Make sure the word that it is changing really needs to be changed. It can be embarrassing when you send an email and then realize that spell check changed the name of the person you were addressing.

COMMENT

Tip: Provide a subject line that is indicative of the content of the message.

COMMENT

11. Use really big pictures next to your talking points for ease of reading…

COMMENT

12. Do not use Comic Sans in a professional email.

COMMENT

If sending to multiple recipients and a response is expected, make certain that it is clear who the respondent(s) should be.

COMMENT

Excellent points! I second the comic sans font comment – I'd also add that to increase readability, communications should not be sent in a color (like pink/aqua/lime green). Regarding #6, many times I will write an e-mail specifically because I want to be able to document the reply from the sender – so a phone call isn't always a good alternative to sending a note.

COMMENT

Another tip I'd add is to not have "thank you" as an automated reply. It makes the "appreciation" not genuine, especially when the composer of the e-mail manually types "thank you" in the message — resulting in "thank you" being stated twice.

COMMENT

I would add that when receiving a communication as part of a very large distribution, do not reply to the sender that you don't want to receive the communication. If it doesn't pertain to you – just delete it. All those replies that say, "this does not pertain to me," or "I already did this," really start to add up for the employee who sent out the e-mail communication to begin with. I think this fall under the, "is this e-mail really necessary" rule.

COMMENT

Lee, do not use Comic Sans for anything. Ever.

COMMENT

I would add to #5, if you receive an email that you know was meant for someone with a similar name, forward that note to the correct recipient. The sender may not have access to the Global Address list.

COMMENT

I would say that the use of email or any form of electronic communication has created the perception that you will get a response immediately after hitting send. I think if you need something that instant you should be making the extra effort by making a phone call or walking to that persons office when possible. Otherwise have the understanding that you may not receive a response the same day even especially with the amount of emails we get each day.

COMMENT

Has anyone else had problems accessing others calendars in Outlook? It seems like after the migration I can't seem to easily see others calendars to schedule meetings. It says that Outlook is "Offline" when it is clearly not. Any suggestions on how to correct this problem?
