Correspondence

All email correspondence to the instructor or GTA must contain a subject line beginning Subject: EECS882 - followed by a meaningful indicator of the content. The former is so that automatic email filters are likely to do the right thing; the latter is so that we know what the email regards when looking at the folder view in an email client. Email not following this guideline is likely to get misfiltered and be unread.
