D2 Communication and Presentation Techniques For this assignment I will be assess the suitability of the three methods used for Communicating and presenting information.

Spamming includes, sending hoax e-mails. E-mail spoofing is another common practice, used for spamming. Spoofing involves deceiving the recipient by altering the e-mail headers or the addresses from which the mail is sent. * Hacking: The act of breaking into computer security is termed as hacking. After the e-mail is sent and before it is received by the desired recipient, it "bounces" between servers located in different parts of the world. Hence, the e-mail can be hacked by a professional hacker. * Misinterpretation: One has to be careful while posting any kind of content through an e-mail. If typed in a hurry, the matter could be misinterpreted. * Lengthy mails: If the mail is too long and not properly presented the reader may lose interest in reading it. * Not suitable for business: Since the content posted via e-mails is considered informal, there is a chance of business documents going unnoticed. ...read more.
