FIGURE 5.1 GOOD EXAMPLE OF
AN EMAIL MESSAGE
To: Janna Lu [email@example.com]
From: Lonny Winters [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Subject: Lunch orders for Friday’s meeting
You will find the lunch
orders for Friday’s meeting attached to this message. Please confirm that the caterer, Rose’s Deli,
can fill the order and deliver it to us before the meeting starts.
The meeting is scheduled to
begin at noon in the Bell conference room on the tenth floor. I would like the food to be available for
pickup by attendees as they enter the room.
I assume the lunches will be delivered in individual brown bags as they
were at our previous meeting.
If there is a problem with
the delivery, please let me know as soon as possible in case we need to make
other arrangements. I will have a check
for the lunch available for the delivery person when he or she arrives. Thanks for your help with this and be sure to
order a lunch for yourself.
