Emails do provide us with a complete control over our emotional responses, such as maintaining your cool when you are replying to an unreasonable customer. However, when emails are not properly constructed, it may result in an unintentional presentation of your real feelings, which may even amplify the graveness of the matter. Be it the tone of your email, spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, improper subject titles or others, these factors will affect the professionalism of your company.
