Customers First;May2013, Vol. 18 Issue 5, p1
The article discusses the ways to avoid mistakes that could keep e-mails from reaching to customers. It explains that typing e-mail messages with all capital letters and clicking send before proofing for any typographical errors must be avoided because recipients will think that the sender is shouting on them and errors will paint an unprofessional image. It also suggests that details of the Internet Service Provider (ISP) must be determined because some ISPs have a bad reputation as spammers.
