Email Protocol When ever you send email, your last name must appear in the FROM part of the heading. Any mail that is sent to me with an alias instead of your last name in the FROM part will not be answered. Also, please capitalize words where appropriate. For instance, don't write something like "i will not be able to come to class tomorrow". Email messages written with out the proper capitalization are hard to read and consequently annoying. Instead please write "I will not ...".
