Before emailing me.
Email is the preferred means of contacting me. However, take a few seconds to read the following before hitting the the send button.
No unsolicited emails. In particular, please do not invite me to join facebook, linkedin or whatever is the latest madness. I have no interest even if you are Amitabh Bachchan
Make sure you emails have valid from/reply-to and subject fields. Subjects should be brief. Students doing a course with me please mention the course number in the subject. Examples below.
[cs682] Mistake in midsem marks. [cs350] Doubts in the last lecture.
- Follow basic email etiquette: as far as possible please send only plain text mails and definitely not doc files. When replying please use inline style. Also do not hijack threads by replying to old mails with subjects changed. Compose a new mail instead. Mail clients (except some stupid ones like the gmail webclient) figures out threads by looking at
In-Reply-Tofield so your email then gets connected to a different thread.
