AskMe question about writing email February 21, 2019 6:40 AM   Subscribe

Can you please help me find a thread on the green that was about how to write emails that have the best chance of eliciting the desired action/response? I'm thinking someone submitted their proposed email phrasing and people responded with critiques and also little hints about how to structure emails. Thank you for the help.

Was it this one about offsite parking?

Oh! I think it was. Thanks so much.

Wasn't there another one with a magic phrase that was almost passive-aggressive? It was something like a subject line I remember as, "I guess you don't want this opportunity" but it wasn't that downtrodden.

I think there have been various asks and answers that feature "The Magic Email."

Since I have not heard from you on this, I have to assume your priorities have changed.

Left here again because people always look for it, and every once in a while I have to search for it to bc I can't remember.
