typo error when writing email

January 4, 2012 4:00am CST
I noticed that sometimes we make a typo error which somewhat crucial and looks silly for us. I have this experienced when wrongly type the date of appointment to client,every thing becomes screwed up since I have not realized my mistakes until close to the date. Luckily my friend noticed this typo and correct me so that I could revised the email accordingly. My client has also understood the situation and forgive my silly mistake. How about you? Have you ever experienced that kind of mistake?

I'm pretty much concerned about the things I send to other people through my e-mail, especially since my e-mail is for professional use. To avoid typographical errors, I double check my message before I send them. I also check if the attachment is in fact attached and the people I'm sending the mail to is correct. We can never be too careful as people we engage with are also busy and errors on setting dates 'cause a lot of problems on their schedule.

Yes, i sometimes have some typo errors specially with the dates. That's because i would always copy paste a memo for its format and delete the contents. So, sometimes i overlook changing the date of the memo. Good thing , my boss would just call my attention for it and let me have it retyped or wiped out and corrected.

I have experienced this before. I never re-read my email before sending it. But now, I try to re-read it always to minimize some errors on my email. It is quite embarrassing to give emails with errors. Happy mylotting!

I never send a email, but when I do I will re-read my email and send it to a friend of my to correct any mistakes, because you never see all mistakes of yourself. Try to minimalise your errors/typo and re-read your email and everything's going to okay :)

I always try minimize typo error in my email, especially for working activity. I always re-read and scroll down throughout the page. Only to make sure there is no fatal mistake in the email. Although performing checking like that, I still encounter little typing error like missing a vocal or a typing mark. This year must be better.

Hi omchesunche, Typo errors in emails can be rather embarrassing at best and disastrous at worst. I always make it a point to check and recheck my emails for spelling and grammatical errors so much so that it has become second nature to me. Yes, It would take a bit more time but I rather be safe than sorry. You're lucky that someone alerted you on the mistake and that your client is understanding. But this may not always be the case. So it's better to take care and do it right the first time. Have a good day.
