    I often make some stupid grammar and spelling errors when I email my clients and realise it later. I wonder if it creates a bad impression. I often feel embarassed and regret for not checking the email before pressing the send button.

    What about you :p

    Do people really care about correct grammar? To me the information is more important then if the person put a period at the end of the sentence. Or even accidentally said forget instead of forgot,etc.

    well forget, forgot is ok. Few moments I emailed a potential client and by mistake typed if instead of is because f and s are close :eek: and unfortunately the sentence didn't make any sense. He was replying me within 15 minutes asking questions. Now he hasnt replied since 1.5 hours so I was just wondering :rolleyes:

    I often feel that way when I see myself or someone in my company use incorrect spelling or punctuation. I guess some people care more than others... Don't think it's any sort of deal breaker though :rolleyes:

    It's not a big deal but I do think it looks better and more professional if there are no grammatical errors.

    in general like here on the forums and such I dont care, Its whatever. but on anything official I am doing It has to be 100% correct and profosinal looking. Either way I will question myself like what if I spelled it right or made it look more legit I could have done better, so I just do shit right the first time. But like I said on the fourms i just bang away at the keyboard

    If you're using Outlook, set a delay on your emails. 2 mins or something should do the trick. That way you can stop it sending if you realise you made a stupid typo.

    I write tons of emails daily and make the odd typo. It's not really an issue as long as you don't do it all the time.

    But seriously, I think if its a few mistakes here and there won't really matter. Unless you are making yourself out to be a corporation.
