I guess you, as well as I, get a lot of e-mails, and when getting without any text in the subject field, especially in a business context , it makes me wonder a bit.
I mean, e-mail has been around quite some time, right? And it’s not that difficult to write one either. You enter one or several recipients, hopefully a subject line and then the actual message. So how come I get a number of e-mails with no subject whatsoever?
I’m fairly convinced that every e-mail that’s being sent has some sort of subject and context which can be summarized in one or a few words. My questions here are:
- Who, in your experience, are the ones most prone to writing a no-subject e-mail?
- Why would anyone send an e-mail without a subject?
