Without the benefit of vocal inflections or physical gestures, it can be tough to tell e-sarcastic from e-serious, or e-cold from e-formal, or e-busy from e-angry.

Sometimes I even reply—always from an anonymous email—but it never goes any further than that. I'm wondering whether and who I should tell about this.
In one experiment from a 2005 study, test participants emailed 10 statements to a recipient. These senders believed the recipient would correctly identify the intended emotion behind most of the messages.
