4. Other people's messages

  • Do not extract and use text from someone else's message without acknowledgment. You would not do this with conventional mail, so do not let the ease of being able to do it with email lead you into bad habits.

  • Do not make changes to someone else's message and pass it on without making it clear where you have made the changes.
