This author takes email VERY sersiously.

I’ll add a helpful hint instead of a sin: if you want to send someone a short message like “lunch @ Easy Street, 12:30” then type that in the subject line and type EOM at the end.  EOM means…end of message.  Don’t type anything in the body and the recipient doesn’t waste time opening the email to read your short message.

We all write email. So much so that it has become like brushing your teeth- you really don't think about HOW you good a job you are doing- you just brush.

The folks at Blueflavor.com have posted a concise (hallmark of good email) and clear (also important) guide to writing email that works for you and the recipient.   We can all benefit from this refresher. See it here.
