How many times (show of hands please) have we sent someone an email or been told that they sent us an email only to find out it never came?
I wonder where all of those thousands (millions?) of emails end up when they aren't delivered properly.
It turns out that spelling is crucial – any mistake is a big deal. Same with punctuation. Ever type a comma for a period? Guilty.
Then there’s the “dot-com,” “dot-org,” “dot-us” thing.
Whenever you send an email that really counts, you might want to check on it’s delivery. Oh, those “receipt for delivery” options are quite undependable. I don’t ever use them anymore or respond to them. They aren’t always delivered in a timely manner (or at all) and you need to send the receipt when you open the email – before you ever read it. Thus, it’s no guarantee that it was ever read, only opened.
