CEEBS Consulting Email Etiquette TipsReview following points before emailing

  • What is the purpose of this email?
  • Who are the recipient(s)?  Check the email address.  Include need to know recipients.
  • Greet the recipient in the email.  Introduce yourself if it is the first contact.  Let them know the purpose of the email. Identify any special attachments.  Provide important information. Provide a method of responding to you and a timeline or due date if applicable.
  • Review the body of the email for clear content.
  • Check the email address. Enter a Subject Line that is clear and concise.
  • Use cc or bcc if you do not want to share email addresses.  Protect privacy at all times.
  • Know the difference between a formal and informal email.
  • Check your spelling and punctuation.
  • Closing or signing off with sincerely, best regards and thank you always works.
  • Proofread the email from the reader’s perspective.
  • Go through a checklist and make sure you attached everything you meant to send.
  • Reply to emails promptly.  Think, Read It Over before you send your email.
  • When replying hit reply so the sender can see the history in the thread.
  • Be proud of your email, it is a reflection of your effective communication skills.


  • In Subject Line. Never use ALL CAPS. Some people take this as YELLING.
  • Never use FREE or % sign in the subject line, it is a red flag for spam.
  • Never open emails you do not trust.
