Composing better emails
Good advice (and common sense) about writing efficient + useful emails.

IMHO, the best email (like the best comment in programming) is the one you need not writing. Instead use other dedicated tools : question code in GitLab (or equivalent), ask for clarification in issue trackers, and don't use emails for instant messaging. Also avoid "Ok, thx" in "Reply to all" ;-)
NB : I'm not a big fan of emails anyway. Most of the time, information is missing, people are forgotten in the recipients list, and any communication that could be done easily gets complicated by the misuse of email.
