  6. Responding to Email • It’s too easy to quickly send an email before thinking clearly about what you have written. • At times it’s best to wait a few days. • You don’t have to respond to every email. • Keep track of how much time you spend on email.

  7. Keep in mind different forms of writing • Formal • Informal • Develop more than one voice

  8.

  9. E-mail Addresses • Username@hostname.domain • Username – identifies the individual • Hostname.domain – location of individual’s mailbox • Hostname.domain – specifies the computer (mail server) on which the mail of “username” is stored. • The domain can consist of subdomains. • Username@hostname.subdomain.domain Ex. ann.jones@unl.faculty.edu

  14. E-mail Aliases • A name that’s easy to remember that is associated with an email address. • Enter Ann in place of Ann.miller@unl.edu • Each mailer is different but you’ll use features such as, “address book” or “nickname”.

  15. Components of an E-Mail message • From: From whom the message was sent • To: To whom the message was sent • Send to more than one person by separating the addresses by commas

  16. Components of an E-Mail message • Subject: What the message is about Short and to the point. • Cc: Carbon copy to another user This address shows up in the message • Bcc: Blind carbon copy to another user This address does not show up in the message

  17. Components of an E-Mail message • Date: shows time sent • Ex. Tue. 29 May 2001 1:00:40 - 0300 (EST) was sent 4:00:40 GMT • GMT – Greenwich Mean Time • Greenwich England – where standard time is kept.
