1. A great post with valid pointers.

    I’m still getting to grips with getting people’s attention as I’m finding a lot of the time my email to clients gets ignored and I’m having to chase them to sign things off or provide me with information.

    The reply all feature is overused and I find that I’m copied in as a “last resort” to get noticed as they would probably think “Oh she might notify them for me”. It can get a little annoying but I hardly get many emails in the mornings so I guess it’ okay, for now.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • I love email so much. As an introvert who wants nothing more than to avoid unnecessary interpersonal contact, email is a fantastic invention. But the misuse of reply all enrages me. I mean, it’s bad enough when someone copies you on an email that has nothing to do with you, but then when everyone else on that chain hits reply all, your inbox becomes a total disaster. So much for inbox zero if that happens.
