Business Etiquette Mistake #11: Hitting “Reply All”

Always default to “Reply,” not “Reply All.”

Don’t you just hate it when someone adds you to a mass email, and then people include you — and everyone else — in their replies…

According to SaneBox’s internal data, the average inbox contains only 38% important, relevant emails.

This means that 62% of emails in the average inbox are not important…

So, don’t send emails to people who don’t want them.

Always default to “Reply,” not “Reply All.”

And, before hitting “Reply All” or adding names to the Cc or Bcc lines, ask yourself, “Who really needs to receive this email?”

Take the time to send your messages to the right people.
