Qs: Studies on Email Problems
Editor for this issue: Steve Moran <stevelinguistlist.org>
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Studies on "e-mail" problems
I am currently looking for studies on "e-mail".
More precisely, does anyone know or is well informed about the
following two issues:
-problems of politeness in e-mails
-kind of information sent via e-mail in big firms (what kind of
information is sent without problem by e-mail and to the contrary,
what is the one that is not well suited to e-mails --> for example,
because people get upset ).
Every piece of information will be of help.
I will post a summary of responses.
A big thank to everyone.
