Jargon Busting No. 31 – Zen Mail


After a month of busting jargon I thought I would end on my favourite jargon.

Zen mail – to receive an email with no text in it.

We have all done it, we get carried away with the mouse, accidentally clicking before we are ready, it’s easy to do.

If you receive some zen mail remember that it is almost certainly a genuine mistake and be polite when you ask what the email was supposed to contain.

So it is best Dear Reader not to be Zen when sending emails but remember to occasionally spend time away from the keyboard and screen so that you can be a little Zen IRL.
