Trick email recipients into thinking you’re on the move

Htech-tricksow many times have you received an email from someone, but you don’t feel like getting into a long conversation?


It happens.


But there’s a simple trick you can use to get them off your back.


Next time you want a conversation to stop, just erase your normal signature and place “Sent from my iPhone” after your message.


The recipient will think you’re using your phone on the move and will be less likely to craft a detailed response.


Sneaky, but effective.
