Emails are the most effective way of communicating in today's world; it's so much easier to be in touch with all our loved ones through emails. The thing to remember here is that even though E-mails are convenient and efficient to keep in touch it still misses out on displaying emotions, body language, and our tone of voice. Listed are personal some e-mail etiquettes.

If a conversation/discussion is going on please 'reply to all' always, otherwise the people who are Cc'ed on the email will miss out on your responses.

Don't use all 'Caps' in your email - it indicates that you are shouting or yelling at the other person and is considered rude.

In personal e-mails, use the Bcc (blind carbon copy) option. This shows respect for the recipient, as all they see is their own name in the "To:" space - as opposed to being one of a "herd" of recipients.

E-mail thank you notes are always appropriate.

It is not necessary to reply all 'forwards' but if the email is directed to you personally then a reply is recommended.

When sending forwarded emails, make sure you delete all the information including the email addresses and any other information except the subject matter and also make sure not to include the people who already have received the email.

Some emoticons are listed below.

:> or :-> = Devilish grin
:] or :-] = Friendly
:( or :-( = Frowning
:/ or :-/ = Frustrated
:) or :-) = Smiling
:O or :-O = Surprised
;) or ;-)= Winking
:} or :-} = Wry smile

By following these simple rules we can make emailing more fun.
