E-mail writing Electronic communication has emerged as the most widely use mode of written communication  in the corporate world these days.  Because of its speed and broadcasting ability, is fundamentally different from paper-based  communication. The turnaround time is so fast that e-mail is more conversational than traditional  paper based media. In   a   paper   document,   it   is   absolutely   essential   to   make   everything   completely   clear   and  unambiguous because your audience may not have a chance to ask for clarification. With email  documents, your recipient can ask questions immediately. Email thus tends, like conversational  speech, to be sloppier than communications on paper which is not a very good thing. This is not always bad either; you don’t have to think too much on what to write when you just  have to inform your colleague that you are ready for lunch. However when you have to write more meaningful stuff then you have to be careful and have to  follow the principles of business writing which we have already discussed. However E-mails goes a little ahead of the purview and something more has to be added to them  to make them effective and fruitful. Since it is a fast medium and used quite informally by the people it is imperative that people send  and receive a lot of mails, half of which are forwards and are not of much use. When our mail  hits such flooded mail boxes it has to have something different to ensure that it is read and is  acted upon. So let’s learn how to write better e-mails –
