Rev. Skarekroe: Talk about First World problems.
MyKingdomForYourHorse: If you want something to biatch about with regards to email, I think sign offs are at the lowest of the low for this ranty totem pole. No you want to rail on something how about idiots who use the reply all without actually looking to see who it might actually reply all to. Those people should have their thumbs crushed.With warm regards
Pocket Ninja: If I use any word other than "thanks" as an email signoff, it's intended either as a sarcastic jab or an outright insult.
Ned Stark: Signoff should include your name your department and your phone and fax #s. Infa 100%.
JacksonBryan: Whiney little shiat.
Unoriginal_Username: I rarely use a sign off. Hell, I don't often bother to even put my name at the end of an email. The people getting them know who it's from, my name's in the address.Don't use signatures either, more of a hastle./don't get me started on folks that keep the 'Sent from my iphone/droid/crackberry' option checked. Who cares how you're sending the message, as long as you proof read before hitting send it's all good.
wademh: Glad we could have this little talk.Cheers (hic)--sic hoc legere scis nimium eruditionis habes

Tax Boy: Most annoying signoff evar:
amindtat: Related to that, department heads who forward an e-mail they got from corporate to everyone in the department, seeming without knowing that the global address it was sent to originally already included everyone in the department. Thanks Capt. Redundant.
Archae hippy: I have a colleague that signs off:"For the sake of our environment, please consider before printing this email"No, I don't like her.
MyKingdomForYourHorse: amindtat: Related to that, department heads who forward an e-mail they got from corporate to everyone in the department, seeming without knowing that the global address it was sent to originally already included everyone in the department. Thanks Capt. Redundant.As a manager of an exchange server, this infuriates me to the nth degree."Why is my inbox so slow?""I don't perhaps its the 30k duplicate emails you have sitting in there?"
MightyPez: It makes me glad I don't have to do that anymore. At my previous employer we were required to keep 5 years of documents (including emails) per DHS, and 7 years of tax information per the IRS. Mailbox quotas were meaningless because people would constantly send messages to everyone in the company with attachments asking "Is this yours???" The gnashing of teeth was epic after the partners let me lock down the dist. groups.
