I know we’ve all had that “oh, no” experience when we’ve accidentally sent email before we were finished editing it. No, I didn’t do that with the previous email. ;-) It just happened to occur to me, without having to learn the hard way, that there’s a really simple but effective trick to prevent it: just enter the recipients last. I know, it’s not exactly the most brilliant insight ever, but I also know that most people follow their email program’s subtle direction to enter the recipient first, then the subject, then finally the text, and might not have stopped to think that a different order is much safer.
