"By requiring employees to use appropriate, businesslike language in all electronic communications, employers can limit their liability risks and improve the overall effectiveness of the organization's e-mail and Internet copy in the process."
-Excerpt from “Writing Effective E-mail,” by Nancy Flynn and Tom Flynn

Ever get copied on an e-mail that does not apply to you? Have trouble reading a message because there are so many recipients in the “To:” field? As a business professional, there are some simple rules to follow that will help you avoid looking like an amateur in the world of e-business communication.
