1 Effectively Managing Email

2 Start changing the way you use email now. Deal with your email as soon as you receive it. Reduce frivolous emails.  20 unnecessary emails per day will cost the diocese $208,333.33 annually in time and lost productivity alone.  We are not talking about spam emails here. We are talking about emails we receive from various sources which are not essential to the ministry we are in.  This cost estimate does not account for bandwidth cost, storage cost and stress related to dealing with high volumes of emails.  Don’t use “Reply to All” unnecessarily. Effectively Managing Email

3 Think prior to sending an email. Ask the following questions.  Is this email important to the mission of the diocese and to the parishes?  Is email the right medium to communicate this message? Would a phone call, personal conversation or regular letter be more effective?  Who needs to be included in the distribution list?  Include only those people who require the information. These tips will cut down on the volume of emails sent and received and will improve your productivity. Effectively Managing Email

4 Use the Blind Copy Function  When emailing a group of people who are not staff of the Diocese, consider using the BCC (blind copy) field rather than to To or CC field.  When you use the CC field, everyone can see everyone else's email address.  When you use the BCC function, each person will only see their own email address on your message and the other email addresses will be kept private.
