Ironically, this HBR post about writing emails that people want to read rambles a bit. But there's some gems in here:
- Keep it short.
- Delete unnecessary content such as old message threads.
- No long paragraphs (my rule of thumb is 6 lines max on a typical screen).
- No fancy formatting, EXCEPT to
- Emphasize the important bits!
- Use pull-quotes (ie put a copy of the important bit in the body of your reply).
- Less is more.
