The AltanaESP Network and System both relies heavily on all kinds of electronic communications (e.g. mainly emails, some SMS’s and to a lesser extent faxes) for sharing information, coordinate activities, keep network participants informed, update users and manage project.
In modern times – generally speaking – emails are still the most important communication “tool” employed for sharing and conveying of data, information, ideas and concepts. This is equally as important within the AltanaESP Network and System.
Plenty of people make use of emails, sadly though, the majority tend to follow ineffective, irritating and frustrating email practices when sending, receiving and replying to emails. These inefficient practices frequently results in unnecessary complicated email related matters and makes dealing with emails much more of a daunting task than it actually have to be (i.e. it significantly undermines human productive efforts).
SASCEC’s email (i.e. electronic communications) policy, guidelines and etiquette is just our humble way of delivering a contribution to and encourage more productive email practices within the AltanaESP Network and System.
Most modern email clients have similar functionalities and capabilities, the SASCEC email policy, guidelines and email etiquette, are based primarily on the capabilities of Thunderbird (an open source email client). Thus, the AltanaESP Pty Ltd policy, guidelines and email etiquette guidelines is based on and works well within the Thunderbird email client environment. However, this stated emailing principles and ethics – to a greater or lesser extent – can be adopted and applied when using other email clients.
Therefore, the email etiquette promoted and encouraged by SASCEC, remains valid, regardless the email application used.
Although the SASCEC Email Policy is mainly focused on emails, it is equally just as valid for other methods of modern electronic communications such as the posting of web pages, making comments, sending a SMS and entering replies or commenting on various social media platforms. As a matter of fact… it is a valid foundation for all kinds of communications… electronic, offline and online interactions.
