​All business emails (that are useful) should be in one of the five following formats
  1. FYI - to spread information​​
    1. Daily Scrum - to report on daily progress in a Sprint
    2. Sprint Review/Retro emails
    3. Sprint Planning emails
    4. etc.
  2. Tasks - Sending someone numbered tasks
    1. To Myself - to send yourself a task, and CC interested parties
    2. Tasks to one or more other people
  3. Test Please - to ask for testing and acceptance of a task​
  4. Done - replying to a task email, to show details of what has been done

If your email doesn't fit into one of the above categories, it probably doesn't need to be sent.
