Emails are a great way to communicate. Your career will at one point rely on hundreds of emails. Here's some tips to make the most of your inbox and theirs.

Habit 

Emailing or reading emails can be a ball ache but if you make it part of your daily routine, you will soon forget why it was annoying in the first place. For example; make a conscious effort before you start your day to check emails. This can take up to 10 minutes, which lets face it, is only a fraction out of your day.

Subject titles 

When sending an email, whether its to a professional or to a colleague its always good to make sure the subject title is punchy and makes clear to the recipient what is in the email. This way people won't automatically put your emails in the trash.
