Email Guidelines

Please note and follow the guidelines given below concerning the writing of email messages.

Give the message a subject/title. Email messages without a subject may not be opened because of a fear of viruses.

Keep the subject short and clear but avoid such headings as, ’Good News’, ’Hello’, ’Message from Mary’. These headings are common in messages containing viruses.

Start the message with a greeting so as to help create a friendly tone. The choice of using the other name versus the surname will depend on who you are writing to. If the receiver is more senior to you, or if you are in doubt, it would be safer (particularly in the first communication) to use the person’s surname/family name together with a title, e.g. Dear Mr Smithson/Dear Ms Smithson

It is also becoming quite common to write the greeting without a comma, e.g. Dear Miss Lawson

Start with a clear indication of what the message is about in the first paragraph. Give full details in the following paragraph(s).

Make sure that the final paragraph indicates what should happen next. e.g. I will send a messenger to your office on Tuesday morning to collect the goods.

Any action that you want the reader to do should be clearly described, using politeness phrases. Use ’Could you…’ or ’I would be grateful if…’.

End the message in a polite way. Common endings are:

Yours sincerely, Best regards, Best wishes, Kind regards.

If you did not put a comma after the greeting at the beginning of the message, then do not put a comma after the ending either. e.g. Best wishes Inna

Include your name at the end of the message.

e. g. Kind regards,

b) Exchange your emails. Let your friends check if you’ve done your work correctly. Comment on the works of your friends. Use the guidelines from Ex. 5.
