Web Secret 611: After-hours email
So in case you need to be reminded or need to remind someone, this is why it's bad:
1. You're sending it after hours and most people respond to those email after hours, on vacation, weekends and their off time.
2. Because of this, you are exacerbating their anxiety and decreasing their workplace well-being. So seriously weigh the pros and cons of doing this after hours.
3. When you respond after hours, you are sending the message that you are available anytime, anywhere. It's called setting a precedent.
No one should be open for business 24/7.
