Structure of an email
An email is a form of communication. As such it has a specific structure that should be used. Since reading from a screen is more difficult than reading from paper, the structure and layout of messages is very important. Use short paragraphs and leave blank lines between them. When you have more than one point to make in your email, put the most important information first, working down to the least important.
A successful email has a good first paragraph. Why?
