What is the polite way to ask someone (particularly someone who is a client) not to forward emails to you that don't relate to business matters?
I have one client who is constantly (and I do mean CONSTANTLY) sending me emails regarding various social issues, etc. They are usually of the "forward this to at least five people and copy me" nature. And the "if you don't forward this email, you are someone who does not love God, your country, the American Way of Life, your Mother, etc."
I hate them.
Or they're slide shows of kitten pictures, jokes, etc.
I can't simply add the email address to my junk box because this person does sometimes send me information that I need to know. But the emails are intrusive and annoying--particularly because I get so many of them per day. And I need my request to be extremely diplomatic because this individual is very high up the food chain if you will.
