There are some organizations that insist on printing out emails. Emails received from clients, suppliers, employees and so on are printed, and filed. This state of affairs is interesting, seeing that one of the reasons as to why email was invented was the desire to have paperless communications. Yet when we get to a point of printing out emails, we are obviously out of sync with that objective. A question therefore arises as to why exactly some organizations insist on printing out emails.
It emerges that the main reason as to why organizations insist on printing out emails is something to do with the fact that they desire to have ‘backups’ of all important communications. They therefore print out the emails so that in case something happens to the soft copies online (or in their servers), they can have the printed out hard copies to fall back on. You have to remember that there are many things that can make email accounts inaccessible, and should it be totally impossible to access a given email account, the stuff stored in that account would have gotten lost forever. A visit to one of the sites that provide Gmail login and password help will, for instance, give you an idea on just how many people end up, for various reasons, being completely unable to access their email accounts. Often, in spite of getting the best email account help, such people are totally unable to access their accounts ever again. And if they hadn’t been prudent enough to print out important pieces of correspondence, they lose them for good.
