Replying to Emails - 04/18/2004
The new email system may have advantages, but it presents some new "challenges" as well.

One of those "challenges" is responding to an email.

Emails provide a link that works. But they do NOT include the original message.

Nothing is quiet as useless to me as receiving a reply that does not include the original message.

I've even written about this problem.


So, to "conquer" this challenge, here is the technique I use.

1. When I receive an email from and want to reply to it, I just click on "reply".

2. My email program is set to ALWAYS include the message to which I'm replying.

3. Then I type my reply at the top of the email, the message to which I'm replying is listed below. (This is an internet custom; AOL does it "backwards".)

4. Having typed my reply, I don't send. Instead, I click the link in the original email to reply.

5. This opens the email panel.

6. Now I just copy/paste my reply (which now includes the original email as well) into the email panel.

7. I also copy/paste my reply subject (which now includes the original subject, preceeded by a "RE:".

8. Then I click on to send.

This way, the original sender gets the reply AND the reply includes both an appropriate subject AND it includes the original email as well.
