Just to help me rethink hard about carbon print.
Today the short business e-mail has replaced the memo of past generations. Things have not improved much since the hand written MEMO forms of yesteryear. Today’s messages aren’t smudged from the carbon backing and they aren’t handwritten, but they still arrive making little sense or none at all. And the senders seem to have no filters. They send personal messages within business correspondence. I receive these short emails from businesses, charitable boards, hobby associations and even government entities.’
A memo-type email should be short, well written and contain useful information. A well written message saves time, reduces misunderstandings and makes a good impression. It should be sent only to people who need the information. Make sure that the recipient knows both the name of the person sending the message and the organization involved. When sending the message to multiple recipients respect their privacy. Use the blind carbon copy (BCC).
