    Default E Mail etiquette

    I keep getting copied in to emails that I dont have to action in any way. The info is not really relevant to my role.
    I really hate to reply, copying everyone in, saying 'ooooh, thanks for that'

    but the chief emailer, always asks me , 'did you see that email'

    what do you do ?
    increase the world supply of emails by x10
    or
    ignore the ******

    ?

    This message is intentionally left blank - do not read.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I'm working with that guy! Sits opposite me. Sends rambling and irrelevant emails to tons of people, including me. Hits send then leans over with 'Mary...Mary....hey, Mary? Mary? Did you see that email I just sent?'

    I always say no.
    Practically perfect in every way....there's a time and (more importantly) a place for malarkey.

    Just hit reply all and ask him to either quantify what he needs you to know or do or take you off the chain.

    Abject humiliation normally works really well.

    Any email that I am only CC'd in there is an out look rule which hives them off into a separate folder to read another time
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
