Hacking Email: 99 Email Security and Productivity Tips

From IT Security:

When people read out a phone number, they use “phone rhythm.” No one has to explain “phone rhythm,” we all just seem to do it automatically, “…713…555…12…34”. Similarly, when we answer a phone call we all say, “Hello.” No one taught us to do that, but somehow we all seemed to pick it up.

So why is it that when it comes to emails, there are no accepted standards? Even though 6 billion emails are sent every day, almost no one agrees about simple things like email etiquette, how to organize a note, or whether emails are considered private or not.

The 99 tips in this article make up the best in email practices. From how to ethically use the ‘BCC:’ to what attachments will make your mobile emailing compatible with everyone else’s, this list covers everything you need to know about emailing.

As mentioned above, there are 99 different tips about email, broken out into several categories: Etiquette, Communicating & Effectiveness, Mobile Email, Productivity, Folders, and Filtering, Email Attachments, Tricks, Hacks, Backup, System-Specific Mail, and Last but not Least: Privacy and Security. There aren’t any tips for specific software packages. These are general suggestions on what to do.
