Some people use emails to send pictures of themselves to friends and family.
Never send a picture to someone you have met online whom you don’t know in the real world. They may not be who they say they are, and you don’t want a stranger to have a picture of you or your friends/ family.
Treat people how you yourself would like to be treated.
Take responsibility for what you write when using email and never write something that might hurt or upset someone.
