Delete These 10 E-mail Phrases

How many e-mails do YOU read, compose and delete in an average workday?  Over 100 billion emails are sent each day, and the average time spent reading each one is 15-20 seconds.

2. “Please do not hesitate to contact me …”

3. “I just …”

4. “I think …”

5. “Enclosed please find …” or “Attached please find …”
