How to stop unnecessary replies to emails. People who aren't sure if they should reply to your email. RNR = "Reply not required". Also be assertive - please take me off the list, please don’t keep copying me in, or "Why have you copied me in?" Phoning instead. What's In your inbox right now that you don't' want to get again?
- Here are three suggestions…to help reduce the number of emails that you receive.…The first is to be assertive.…Ask them to please take you off the list.…Or please don't keep copying you in.…If you're a boss, you may find that people…CC you in all the time just in case…you want to know or to show how busy they are.…You may need to tell them to stop doing it.…Just say, "Don't copy me in…"unless you want me to actually do something."…And then if they do it again you can email back with,…"What are you asking me to do?"…Or, "Why have you copied me into this?"…Some people say that asking to be taken off spam lists…just shows them that you exist…and you'll get more and more.…
But I think that most companies are reputable,…and if you ask to unsubscribe then they will do it.…And the law on spam has really tightened up a lot recently.…So if you click on unsubscribe they really will do this.…Particularly if they look reputable,…then ask them to take you off their list.…My second suggestion is to reduce incoming emails…
