Over the last few weeks, we’ve thoroughly explored the ways you can increase the efficiency of your email. Here’s a quick recap of the main points.

  • Part 1: most of your emails are probably unnecessary
  • Part 2: use cloud services to send large files and images
  • Part 3: you don’t need a long signature file
  • Part 4: make it easy for readers to tell whether they need to respond
  • Part 5: use filters to get rid of the junk and organize your incoming email
  • Part 6: receipt etiquette
  • Part 7: keep your emails short and effective
  • Part 8: keep yourself safe from viruses and malware
  • Part 9: read, respond, and file or delete

Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that the less email you send, the less you’ll have to deal with. This may be just a snarky e-card, but the sentiment is one that most of us will be familiar with.


Still unsure whether to send that email? Here’s a handy flow chart. Print it out and post it in the coffee room at work.
