Email etiquette refers to the code of conduct that guides behavior when writing or responding to emails. These principles of behavior can be modified to suit the intended audience and purpose, but are intended to maintain professionalism and demonstrate a mutual show of respect between email correspondence.
These tips will show you things to avoid and what not to
Include a clear subject line
Title your email in a way that the recipient immediately knows what the message is about before opening it.
Email from a professional email address
Use your company email address if possible. If you are self-employed or using a personal email address for work-related correspondence, set up a professional email address that is appropriate for official purposes.
Use professional greetings
Choose a salutation that is appropriate for the relationship you have with the recipient. If you’re contacting someone for the first time, it’s always safe to use a more formal greeting like “Mr/Ms. Adams.”
Don’t use emojis
Unless the recipient has used emojis when communicating with you in the past, resist the temptation to use them yourself.
