Recipient: All Staff
Good morning, staff. Hello.
Some of you may have been hearing rumors for the past several months about a new "Electronic Mail" system that Northwest Limited installed in their offices. I am happy to announce that our trial run of this "software" in the Gojannesstad branch office has been very successful, and corporate has decided to roll it out to our branch.
You have all been provided with an e-mail account, which you can use to instantly send messages to other employees. Simply type their name in the Recipient field, and add a Subject Line for good corporate citizenship! If you see "RE:" at the beginning of a subject line in an Electronic Mail you receive, it stands for "Reply" and means someone has replied to an earlier message.
If you need to send an Electronic Mail to everyone in a specific department, simply type in that department's name. For example, "Legal" or "Human Resources". You can also send a message to "All Staff", which will include everyone in this office. You may also send mail to multiple people or departments by separating them with a semi-colon. Like so: "Sally Friendman; Legal".
Due to technical limitations of the chosen software, the e-mail system is only set up to send Electronic Mail to people in this office. You cannot send messages through it to any of our other offices at this time. If you need to speak to someone in another office urgently, our "Facsimile Machine" is on the Basement-2 and is now free to use for all staff members.
I hope you will take a liking to this new "software". Please take a moment to read the attached manual for the e-mail, and send any questions, concerns, or comments to our IT department.
