As a lecturer I receive a great deal of e-mails from my students. The most notable thing about these e-mails is that they are often written in that informal style which people use to communicate with their good fellow-friends. This style frequently assumes that it is not necessary to introduce yourself, state the problem, make a reminder on the matter, etc. Occasionally, I tried to share a piece of advice with my students on a good style to write a professional e-mail and even thought about writing a short list of dos and donts. Fortunately, someone already took care of this problem: here is the link to a very useful article.
