Tips to Managing E-mail

Stever Robbins offers tips for managing e-mail overload including how to send better mail and how to "train" those who mail you to do the same.

My favorite tip is to:

Use a subject line to summarize not describe. People scan their inbox by subject. Make your subject rich enough that your readers can decide whether it's relevant. The best way to do this is to summarize your message in your subject.

There nothing worse than e-mail without a relevant subject line, unless of course it doesn't have a subject line at all.
