Email Etiquette #6

Colors and fonts

If you send an email that looks like the image above (click for full glory) Stop. Now. Please. Bright colors and huge fonts might look cool to you but are actually the enemy of the internet.

It reminds me of when the mature age students let loose with word art or animated transitions in PowerPoint. Please stop it makes the baby Jesus cry.

I love gmail. I subscribe to a car email list which only occasionally has something worth reading. To save junking my inbox I filter them out.
