Even if you're new to email communication, it isn't long before you start thinking that you should have majored in typing. Here are some commonly used email abbreviations and their meanings for those who are typing impaired or short on time:

    BTW - By The Way
    FYI - For Your Information
    IMHO - In My Humble/Honest Opinion
    RTFM - Read The Manual
    LOL - Laughing Out Loud
    RSN - Real Soon Now
    ROTFL - Rolling On The Floor Laughing
    TTYL - Talk To You Later
    TIA - Thanks In Advance

If words can't express what you are feeling, try these commonly used symbolic gestures to express yourself:
:-)   Basic smiley, used with a sarcastic or joking statement since we can't hear voice inflection over e-mail.
;-)   Winky smiley. User just made a flirtatious and/or sarcastic remark. More of a "don't hit me for what I just said" smiley.
:-(   Frowning smiley. User did not like that last statement or is upset or depressed about something.
:-|   Indifferent smiley. A little bit better than a   :-(
