How to write professional emails (Top 10 list)

I was going through my old notes as I’m cleaning our my closet. I came across the following notes, that I like a lot, on how to write a professional email.

  1. Use email macros to both improve your efficiency in replying to email, and to improve quality.
  2. End each sentence with the correct punctuation.
  3. Write short sentences.
  4. Each sentence should discuss only one topic.
  5. Use bulleted lists to simplify that information you are trying to convey.
    1. Bulleted lists are easy to read.
    2. Each point is separated from other points.
    3. Lists help to organize thoughts.
  6. Use the following correctly:
    1. Capitalization
    2. Spacing
    3. Formatting
  7. Do not use SMS fake words – ur, dk, lol, how ru, etc.
  8. Make the Subject descriptive.
  9. Limit the email to the subject matter described in the Subject.
  10. Attach files before writing the email. No body likes a forgotten attachments.

There are more, but I would put these as my top 10 list.
