It seems as if every Monday I struggle through a mountain of emails, typically up to 200 in my inbox. Many of these are junk emails and are quickly dismissed to whittle the pile down to something manageable.
I sometimes wonder if in my haste to delete junk mail that I accidentally delete valid emails that I should read. One way to make sure that I don't open your email is to put anything like, “Let us be your affiliate,” the word “donation,” or "SEO" in the title header. That will make me hit delete without opening the message.
Anything that has the letters "FWD" is suspect and depending on who you are, I may or may not open anything forwarded to me. Just because you thought a joke was funny and worthy of forwarding doesn't mean I have the time to read it.
I suppose the point of this blog is to encourage people to put a very descriptive explanation in the subject line that would help prioritize the email. The word "URGENT" might get my attention and rapid response. Until, of course, everyone catches on and every e-mail becomes “urgent.”
