Electronic communication can easily cause misunderstandings. Help the reader understand your message better by:
- Keeping the prior email in your reply
- Quote the original email by using the ">" and indentation. Your new text should be kept to the left. When quoting text on web pages, other people or quoting past email history, indent it
- Add numbers if the sender didn't
- Use a different text colour in your reply
This way you won't forget any questions in the original email.
