      1.      Bury your action item at the bottom of the e-mail. 

      2.      Send a pile of words when a few short sentences would do. 

      3.      Forward a long string of e-mails without clear directions and expect your reader to figure it out.    

      4.      Use “Reply to All” when it’s not necessary.

      5.      Forget that a human being is reading your e-mail.

      6.      Have a blank or vague subject line.

      7.      Forget to proofread your e-mail or forget the attachment.

      8.      Use texting lingo that isn’t universally understood.

      9.      WRITE ANYTHING IN ALL CAPS, WHICH ARE HARD TO READ.

      10.  Embed a graphic background in your e-mail.
