manners maketh a man

Manners cost nothing, but make a huge difference on how people react to you and this is especially relevant when communicating via electronic means. The phrase "manners maketh a man" doesn't seem to be used very often anymore and least of all in business, but perhaps I am just getting old! Your mannerisms and behavioural characteristics make you who you are: "maketh" is an archaic word no longer used that means "makes" and people change their perseoption of you based on your manners, polite behaviour, and etiquette.

People communicate more andmore via electronic means that cuts out body language - 80 % of our commuincations - so it is perhaps more important to be polite when emailing a professional colleague. A lack of mamnners shows disrespect and is sure to wind up a professional colleague.

Manners, of course cost nothing, so why not try and use "please and thank you" when you next send an email. After all, they way you treat people will influence the way they treat you.
