Good Email Practices
The following are Good Email Practices collated from @ITSUofT “#GoodEmailPractices” Twitter education campaign from April – June, 2016
- Large attachment to many? Consider placing on a Web site instead, or send a url for downloading.
- Don’t keep emails for their attachments. Save important attachments to your hard drive.
- Never give your login credentials, UofT will never ask you for them over the phone or email.
- Assume that e-mail may be forwarded to third parties and compose messages accordingly.
- Send UofT matters from a UofT account, e.g. email@example.com / not via firstname.lastname@example.org
- Avoid using UofT e-mail for your other business communications e.g hospitals, charities, government
- Suspicious e-mail? Best not to click any links, attachments nor reply. Report then junk it.
- Don’t send sensitive data (credit card info, password) via e-mail unless operationally needed
- Don’t Reply to All with “Please don’t reply to all.” Only use if it’s essential to all.
- Send e-mail as required to fulfil operational needs. A call or visit might be effective.
