Thanks to technology, it will take you no more than 10 seconds to run a quick spell check on your email. Read through the email for any grammatical errors, such as its/it’s or their/they’re/there. If you’re unsure of how to use these, here's a quick guide to help you out.
Make sure you’ve spelled every name correctly in the email. Misspelling someone’s name is embarrassing for you and, depending on who you’re dealing with, could be considered highly offensive as well. Skim your email for typographical errors. It is easy to get distracted at work and type “the” twice or forget an “and”. Take one final look at your email to make sure each sentence reads fluidly and makes sense. If you’re worried something may be a bit confusing, take the time to explain yourself. On the other hand, if you feel you’re rambling about a certain subject, try to consolidate that part of the email.
