Email ethics (netiquette)

Email ethics are becoming more and more important in business. Email ethical behaviour covers:

  • Not sending out, or receiving in, emails with questionable content especially from or to a company computer system;
  • Not using a company computer system to send and receive personal communications;
  • Not putting a company computer system at risk by opening attachments that have not been scanned;
  • Not sending large attachments unless the recipient has requested them. A business may place restrictions on the size of messages a user is able to receive. When someone sends a "large" attachment, the receiver may be locked out of his mailbox and in a work situation, this could result in lost productivity.
