Correct Answer - Option 1 : writing the entire message using only capital letters

The correct answer is writing the entire message using only capital letters.

Guidelines for Effective Emails:

  • Open with a proper salutation: proper salutations demonstrate respect and avoid mix-ups in case a message is accidentally sent to the wrong recipient.
    • For example, use a salutation like “Dear Ms. X” (external) or “Hi Barry” (internal).
  • Include a clear, brief, and specific subject line: this helps the recipient understand the essence of the message.
    • For example, “Proposal attached” or “Electrical specs for project Y.”
  • Close with a signature: identify yourself by creating a signature block that automatically contains your name and business contact information.
  • Avoid abbreviations: an email is not a text message, and the audience may not find your wit cause to ROTFLOL (roll on the floor laughing out loud).
  • Be brief: omit unnecessary words.
  • Use a good format: divide your message into brief paragraphs for ease of reading. A good email should get to the point and conclude in three small paragraphs or fewer.
  • Reread, revise, and review: catch and correct spelling and grammar mistakes before you press “send.” It will take more time and effort to undo the problems caused by a hasty, poorly-written email than to take the time to get it right the first time.
  • Reply promptly: watch out for an emotional response—never reply in anger—but make a habit of replying to all emails within twenty-four hours, even if only to say that you will provide the requested information in forty-eight or seventy-two hours.
  • Use “Reply All” sparingly: do not send your reply to everyone who received the initial email unless your message absolutely needs to be read by the entire group.
  • Avoid using all caps: capital letters are used on the Internet to communicate emphatic emotion or “yelling” and can be considered rude.
  • Test links: if you include a link, test it to make sure it works.
  • Email ahead of time if you are going to attach large files: audio and visual files are often quite large; be careful to avoid exceeding the recipient’s mailbox limit or triggering the spam filter.
  • Give feedback or follow up: if you don’t get a response in twenty-four hours, email or call. Spam filters may have intercepted your message, so your recipient may never have received it.
