CACC E-Mail Etiquette

This page presents some simple guidelines for electronic mail etiquette. It does not mandate any particular style or rules. Rather it is an attempt to highlight important issues affecting the electronic mail we send.

  • Never send anything you would not want to see in tomorrow's newspaper. There are no security guarantees with electronic mail. Avoid sending ANY confidential or sensitive information via email. Remember, it's very easy for someone else to forward messages you thought were confidential.

  • When you are upset or angry, learn how to use to the 'postpone' and/or 'save-as-draft' commands. Review the message after you have had time to calm down.

  • Do not send abusive, harassing or threatening messages.

  • Be cautious when using sarcasm and humor. Without facial expressions and tone of voice, they do not translate easily through email.

  • Keep messages and replies brief.

  • Use email in a professional manner. Remember, you cannot control where your message might be sent.

  • Do not send chain letters through email. This includes any message that contains a request to forward the information to lots of other people.

  • Do not leave your email account open when you leave your computer. Anyone could sit down at your keyboard and send out libelous / offensive / embarrassing messages under your name.

  • Do not send replies to ‘all recipients’ unless there is a very specific need for everyone to receive the message. It wastes disk space, clutters up inboxes and is annoying to the other people who receive the unwanted messages.

  • When replying, keep messages brief and to the point. Do not reproduce a message in its entirety. Be selective with what you reproduce and only do it as needed.

  • Remember that all laws governing copyright, defamation, discrimination and other forms of written communication also apply to email.
