1. Be succinct - less than 100 words
  2. Do not send before or after contractual hours and expect me to have read it prior to the next work day
  3. Clarity and directness are integral - no emojis subject to interpretation
  4. If it does not relate specifically to my duties or roles, send me no forwards
  5. I do not want emails trying to sell me anything, hoping to buy something, or that otherwise waste my time with frivolous crap
