How to forward emails
Sie wollen eine E-Mail weiterleiten. Dafür können Sie einfach dieWeiterleiten-Taste drücken. Aber Sie sollten auch etwas Freundliches schreiben. Außerdem sollten Sie für andere nicht relevante Informationen aus der E-Mail löschen. So leiten Sie professionell und höflich eine E-Mail weiter.
You sometimes have to forward emails to one or more other recipients. Before you enter their name in the address field and press the ‘forward’ key, make sure they are going to know why they are receiving it, and that you don’t forward information they don’t need.
Look at this example:
You have been sent an email that you think could be interesting for many people in the office.
Before you just forward it
- check the addresses
Instead of just clicking on the address list in your address book, make sure that it is of interest to every one of them. If necessary, delete some of the names.
- look at the subject line
You can either leave ‘RE’ or ‘FW’ or delete it. But make sure there is not more than one ‘RE’ or ‘FW’ as this looks untidy. Add something to the subject line so the recipient knows why you are sending it.
“RE – minutes of meeting” “FW – information on trade fair”
- Delete any irrelevant text
There is no need to send messages meant for you to the other recipient or recipients. The same applies to signatures or email addresses.
