Chapter 10. Using E-Mail Effectively > Don’t Count on Immediacy

Don’t Count on Immediacy

E-mail is a convenient way to send and receive messages, but it is not always read immediately. If you expect a prompt response, use the telephone. For example, if you are sending e-mails to invite people to a meeting that is an hour away, do not expect much of a turnout.

Some e-mail systems have a feature that will notify you when someone has received and read your e-mail. If that service is important to you, spend some time learning how to implement it and other useful features of your system.
