Quick e-mail tips

I've been doing these for a while; they're fairly obvious, but are still worth passing on.

When drafting an e-mail which simply can't leave your computer until it's finished, don't complete the 'To:' field until last.  Any earlier, and it's too easy to accidentally send it.
I tend to put the address at the start of the message itself, then cut-and-paste it to the right box when proofreading.  I do the same thing when composing replies; my e-mail package autocompletes the 'To:' field, but I delete it until I'm ready.

Conversely, when including an attachment, attach it first, before writing the covering note. Otherwise, it's too easy to send only the covering note.
