Guidelines to clean up e-mails before forwarding them
Cleaning an e-mail that has been forwarded to you, before it gets forwarded again is quite an easy task.
First, remember that you’re sharing the e-mail and not the addresses in it. Hence, clear the chain of addresses by â€˜removing all addressesâ€™ from the forwarded message. However, if the list of recipients to whom the mail has been forwarded, is important, then there is no point removing the addresses. Then, clean up the message further if it contains unnecessary ‘>’ characters or messed up line breaks. â€˜Email cleanup utilitiesâ€™ makes this task possible for you. Now, place any comments if you have any, after or before the forwarded message in the text body. However, try to avoid mixing forwarded text and comment; otherwise the mail will lose its originality.
Once you are done with these steps, you will realize how clean your mail looks. Now, your mail looks decent enough to be forwarded.
