Netiquette IQ Blog Of 3/12/2016 - Times To Send (or not) An Email

I don’t believe in email. I’m an old fashioned girl. I prefer calling and hanging up.
—Sarah Jessica Parker

       Netiquettes roots are in etiquette, social rules, and practices that find their origins in the most ancient societies. Because email is 24/7, the aspect of interval and timing can easily be compromised. Traditional correspondences were always limited by time for the services to deliver letters/calls/telegrams. The baby boomers generation was trained, in most households, to refrain from phone calls after certain evening hours and before certain morning hours. Letters, no matter when they were written, would arrive at the recipient’s mailbox when the normal mail delivery completed its journey’s cycle.

        Because of emails’ capabilities to instantly deliver 24/7, someone can receive an email at 11:00 p.m., 2:00 a.m., or whenever the sender releases it. If the addressee receives email on a cell phone, there is a good possibility the device may be active, and a notification sound may awaken the person. Additionally, if the addressee is a manager or executive, the perception of someone emailing at 2:00 a.m. may be negative. Contrast this to someone sending at 6:00 pa.m. This carries a far more positive impression: that is, of an early riser. So write away at any time, but send emails at reasonable times, preferably early morning.

        Another benefit of sending at optimal times is that emails that reach the destination inbox when the addressee is online have a far better likelihood of
1.   being  read;
2.   being read right away; and
3.   receiving a rapid reply.
