Writing for Work Formats Email The Subject Line

The Email Subject Line

The best email subject lines summarize the message and provide the reason the message is being sent.

Keep in mind that the readers of your email see the subject line first - and usually separately from the email's body or main message. Try to make the email subject line useful.
