Do you send a V2 email to correct mistakes?

When mistakes are made in cloud-based files or project management systems like Jira or Confluence, they are easy to update and correct. However, correcting an email that has already been sent is impossible without sending an update.

 

How do we fix wrong emails?

We Send a V2

  • Reply to the same email thread with a follow-up email with the updated content.
  • Include the version number at the top of the email and the reason for the update so the reader can note critical changes.
  • Use V3, V4, V5 and so on if you have to send multiple revisions.

Example
