I just have to share this with my friends and fellow communicators.

If you use Microsoft Outlook, then you know you can customize the background of your e-mails. Well, some people use this option and some don’t, right?

So, today the business president sent out a welcome back message to his leadership. Apparently he uses this option. No skin off my back.

After this e-mail went out, I actually received a message from a member of his original audience with the message, “His background on this e-mail is distracting. Is that the new standard?”

I just had to laugh out loud. With all that is going on at any place of business, in the world, etc., this is an issue? This is what I’m supposed to focus on as a communicator?

Oh – I just cannot wait to see what else 2010 has in store for me!  🙂

  1. 2010 should prove to be very interesting for you, ha! Seriously, it’s always amazing to me how some people pick the petty issues to focus on. Who has time for this? I know I don’t, and then to take the time to send an email about it is even more absurd.

    P.S. – Tillman is as handsome as ever.

  2. Someday people that are using Outlook will get tired of all the “holes in the floor” that Outlook has. With the new Notes R8.5 (new interface IBM should rename it as “Super Mail client / Develop for anything environment”).
