Tip: Your email signature

This tip sounds like a no-brainer, but I often get work emails that don't have one:

If you want people to be able to get back to you easily, include an email signature in your outgoing messages.

Include in the signature all the ways you want people to be able to contact you. Your desk, fax, mobile phone numbers, your Skype address if you use Skype, and yes, your email address.

Why should you include your email address when your email address is right there in the "sent" line of your emails? Because some people are going to copy and paste your signature into their contacts in Outlook. And if your email is not included, it will take an extra step. Save them the trouble.
