Posted by Sendio

November 4, 2015

Integrating a piece of technology that will determine which emails are delivered to your end-users and which ones are going to be marked as illegitimate is something that needs to be done carefully, as one law firm found out. The adoption of their spam filtering service helped them stop some of the less desirable emails, but it also blocked the delivery of some rather important messages sent by the United States District Court. The problem, as it turned out, was that the controls were set too tightly and legitimate emails were labeled as spam.

How to Help Employees Avoid Email Overload

July 29, 2015

As a business communication tool, email is stunningly effective. With a few clicks, employees can see a digital inbox bursting with notes from colleagues and customers, as well as online newsletters, marketing material, industry updates and event news.

No wonder employees are so stressed.

In one day, an average worker receives 85 emails, and spends at least one minute per message replying or reading, on a constant cycle of read-and-purge that only seems to get more challenging. The continual work interruption that this represents has a significant, negative impact on productivity. Some people actually snap from the pressure and delete everything, in a move known as "email bankruptcy."

Fortunately, there's a better way. You can help your employees take charge and reduce email overload through several useful strategies:

Email How It Was Meant to Be

Posted by Sendio

April 6, 2015

The following was submitted by Mitch Rosich, a Partner at Athenian Venture Partners:

I believe that I have used email longer than most people in the world. I recall my very first email address was one issued to me in college that I used in a particular engineering course in which the professor liked communicating with us via that medium. That was 1983. I also went to work for Digital Equipment Corporation in 1986. Even then, at that particular company, email was used extensively for internal communication. The format for an email address was DEVICENAME::USERNAME since everything traveled with the dec.com domain name. Back then, I don’t even think I knew what the term “dec.com domain name” really meant, but on rare occasions we would occasionally exchange email with people at other companies and use the now more familiar format of username@companyname.com. Back then, that was probably 1% of my email flow. The other 99% was internal. Almost all of it was relevant; most of it was important. Occasionally, someone would come up with a cute image that could be displayed nicely on a VT-100 screen, but that was rare and that was the extent of spam in the 1980s.

How I long for those days!!
