7 Deadly Sins Of Email -Deadly Sin #3 PDF Print E-mail
Written by mypchell.com   
Please Note: This update is part of a series, The Seven Deadly Sins of Email, written by Squeezebox. This update includes the 3rd instalment (of seven).

If this sin wasn’t being committed all the time, there wouldn’t be a Deadly Sin #2. If you send messages with all of the addresses just added into either the ‘To’ field or the ‘CC’ field, you are sharing those addresses with everybody you send it to. This is the worst email sin of all!

HTML (or Rich Text) is fine for sending messages with images, formatted fonts and backgrounds, and it is OK to use it for the fun stuff. But HTML comes with a price. Every message in HTML is taking up more space on your hard disk and longer to download than simple text messages. Add to that the concern that HTML can include malicious code, albeit unlikely in a message you have created.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hate them, don’t you? All of those indent marks (vertical bold liners in HTML messages) just clutter the content up and make reading it disjointed. You can set your messages to leave out the indents as default.

Maybe most people have broadband now, and maybe they can download larger files. BUT, large attachments clog up the system (email downloads don’t transfer at broadband speeds) and fill up hard drives. Many people still have dial-up or maybe a capped broadband service. They aren’t going to thank you for that nice 4mb picture you sent them that took twenty minutes to download!

Not everyone has the full Microsoft Office, nor does everyone have Works. I suppose that most of my contacts have Word installed, but not all have Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher (the right version) and Access. How frustrating for someone to spend ages downloading that huge file you sent them, only to find out that they can’t even open it!

 
Using Mailing Lists and Aliases PDF Print E-mail
Written by mypchell.com   
Mailing lists can save you time if you frequently send ‘round robin’ messages. One important consideration is that your recipients may not want their e-mail addresses displayed for all to see. This can be prevented by making use of the 'BCC' facility, first of all though, create the mailing list.
