>Just got here. IR tonight.Dear Ray
Can you please include all relevant information in the body of your email.
My reasoning as given in a previous email, is repeated below as a way
"I have to process nearly every message that comes through these lists
which involves not just reading them but deciding if information
needs to be captured, if a reply is necessary or if it can be
discard, then where appropriate I need to actually capture
information and transfer it to the database or others and often also
replying, e.g., as I am now doing. This is on top of my
AccountingEducation.com mail (private business), work emails and of
course personal emails. At the best of times this is a time
consuming job. Just try doing it with an average of 200 to 300 BGT
emails a day out of around 500 to 600 emails on a good day :-)
I read my messages by going to body to body, therefore if information
is not in the body and UPFRONT and clear, I have to then start to
scan the body for the information, often as well as trying to
interpret the body and if necessary then scan the headers to find the
subject line. All this adds quite a bit of additional load to the
process, both time wise and mentally. Last night I was working
through 500 messages, so your posting and some others where quite
frustrating as they added a lot to my process.
BTW just having EDIT in the subject line is not enough. There are
often numerous replies to a post with EDIT in the subject line. Each
has to be checked and either noted or discarded, so just relying on
the subject line to communicate a point is not helping at all.
I hope that makes my take a bit clearer."
