Emails – Who are you talking to anyway?

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Have you ever received an email addressed to multiple recipients and not known if the subject matter is intended for you or someone else in the email?

Be sure to address people or groups separately in emails going out to several people so everyone involved is in complete understanding of their roles and responsibilities. Each recipient needs to know exactly why they are included on this email, even if it is just FYI. An example of this would be, “John, please get the pricing together. Packaging team, send me the graphics you have on hand. Joe, FYI.”

Specify to each recipient why they are receiving this email.
