Core Rules of Netiquette

  • Know the laws about the ownership of electronic mail which will vary from place to place.

  • Thecostof delivering an e-mail message is, on the average, paid about equally by the sender and the recipient.

  • Control characters or non-ASCII attachmentsmay not be decodable.

  • Understand about Forwards, Chain letters, Sending excessive mail, sending unsolicited mail.

  • Know who (the person, group, …) & what you are sending.

  • If the message is a long message, state it in the subject.

For Mail

  • Check all mail before responding to the mail

  • If needed, respond that you have received the information and will send a longer reply later

  • Make things easy for the recipient (include your contact info)

  • Have subject headings which reflects the content

  • Keep your signature short

  • Be brief but not terse

  • Wait overnight to send emotional responses to messages

  • Be brief and to the point.

  • If you are sending a reply to a message or a posting be sure you summarize the original at the top of the message, or include just enough text of the original to give a context.
