It is ok if there are some minor grammar mistakes if you are using incorrect punctuation or overusing exclamation marks in the e-mails, it is not acceptable.

6. Using not-so-famous fonts

7. Mails with a long history

Delete the part of e-mail conversations which are not relevant in present. It doesn’t make any sense to the reader to see unnecessary history. It takes few minutes to make e-mail look clean.

8. Unnecessary attachments

There are many people who send wrong attachments in hurry. This also looks very unprofessional and you should have the habit of rechecking the attachment before sending it through e-mail as it can have your personal information also.

9. Too long e-mails

Every e-mail you send should be very precise and only have required information about the subject you are using. Writing long paragraphs in the e-mail doesn’t work well and should be avoided as much as possible. No one has the time to read lengthy e-mails and there is big chance that your message gets ignored easily.

10. Delayed replies to the time-bound e-mails

No one likes to work or communicate with a careless person. Discipline is one thing that our generation is lacking in a big way. You should try to reply the important e-mail on time and make sure you know the priority of the e-mail and answer the important ones first.
