There are a ton of email etiquette rules out there that are good to know and follow. One that’s rarely addressed is this See Below scenario:
You’ve been replying back and forth with a friend and decide you need to bring in another friend for their opinion. So on the 8th reply you CC this second friend and simply say “see below.”
Awesome, now I get to read through all your earlier emails and signatures and attached signature images to try to parse out what you’re asking of me.
Rather, do this
- Quickly summarize what you and friend 1 have been discussing
- Ask a direct question
- Bask in email etiquette happiness
