10 Things Never To Put In Email
What is the best way to catch the attention of legal searchers and e-discovery practitioners? Perhaps it is by using one of the top 10 phrases that tells them to find interesting things. Elizabeth Charnock, CEO of Cataphora, a provider of e-discovery software, lists them for us:
- “I could get into trouble for telling you this, but…”
- “Delete this email immediately.”
- “I really shouldn’t put this in writing.”
- “Don’t tell So-and-So.” Or, “Don’t send this to So-and-So.”
- “She/He/They will never find out.”
- “We’re going to do this differently than normal.”
- “I don’t think I am supposed to know this, but…”
- “I don’t want to discuss this in e-mail. Please give me a call.”
- “Don’t ask. You don’t want to know.”
- “Is this actually legal?”
If you find yourself typing one of these phrases, perhaps you should delete the entire email.
