How To Write An Angry Email Professionally

Think About It First

If at all possible, have this conversation in person. Although it might be more difficult in some ways, it will be easier in other ways.

Take Time to Calm Down

You don’t want to say anything you’ll regret in this email—because once it’s out there, it’s permanent!

Clearly State the Intent of Your Email

Start with a friendly greeting, then outline why the email is being sent. State the issue concisely.

Keep it, well, Professional.

Don’t be entirely fueled by your anger. Stick to stating objective facts about the situation, not just your opinion of the person.

Sign Off with a Kind Message

Don’t leave a bitter taste in the recipient’s mouth by ending the email on a sour note. The point of this email is to enact change.
