How many emails do you receive in a day? Well in 2015 the average worker received 122 emails per working day…
Emails really do have a bad name, they easily get missed, or misunderstood, they are filled with typos and grammar mistakes and we reply to them in a speed to get the inbox to 0…. But we must accept that email is here to stay, even with all its imperfections.
So what are the most common email mistakes? I bet you have made a few yourself…
1.Please find attached
Or not, as the case may be. I must admit, I am guilty of this one myself. There have been so many times when I have sent or received an email with no attachment, and yes it is very annoying.
2. To me, from me
Clicking reply and typing out an email to then send it to yourself? We’ve all been there.
3. The dreaded thread
You go back on a point, only to find the conversation has continued without you… maybe try a phone call, or a meeting in these cases.
There are so many email errors we make on a daily basis; can you think of any more?
