Electronic Mail Netiquette


Consequences of Bad Use of E-Mail

  • Your mail will likely bounce, because:

    • Other sites have (often small) limits on e-mail size

    • Other users may filter mail and reject large files

  • For really large files, or even modest size files with many recipients, it may fill up spool areas

  • It may fill up the recipient's disk quota on non-NRAO systems

  • It doesn't look good (you should show you know what you're doing)

  • It can have an effect on everyone (if mail delivery stops)
