5. Not Using Alternative Contacts
Always enter the e-mail in the first e-mail, but complete the section in the next section, this is to avoid a long e-mail chain.
Do not send attachments or files if they are not really needed. Moreover, attachments with large capacity make it difficult to open. Send attachments or emails if necessary.
