Business e-mail etiquette ...

Consider a company-wide policy for sending business e-mails; below are a few basic tips:


  • Consider adding your “company name” to the subject line as it helps the receiver identify where the e-mail is coming from.  For example,Subject:IFCA – FALL CONFERENCE


  • Use a “greeting.”


  • State the purpose of your e-mail; add your closing remarks.


  • Finish your e-mail with a closing.


  • Create a professional “signature” under “signature” in Microsoft Outlook.  Google instructions on how to set one up if you’re unsure on how to do it.


  • It’s suggested to add a “waiver” to your signature too … if you want a sample of a “waiver,” contact the IFCA office.
