 **1. Sending out email without proofreading or running a grammar- and spell-check.** If you send out an email without reviewing it, you risk sending it to the wrong person, misspelling the other person'​s name, including an incorrect date, and writing sentences like this one: "Is their a time earl nest week we could meet." If you regularly make such errors, people will wonder about your ability to handle important details. Proofreading is a necessity–just ask people who have written "​Hell"​ when they intended "​Hello."​\\ **1.

 **2. Using a vague or outdated subject.** Emails with subjects such as "​Update"​ and "Good Afternoon"​ go unread in inboxes because readers are too busy to guess what the message is about. An old subject like "Where to Meet for Lunch" confuses readers when the lunch took place last week and the email is really a budget announcement. Making readers figure out what you are writing about diminishes their performance and yours.\\ **2.
