This paper is part of a research project to investigate strategies for improving the use and re-use of email sent during the course of engineering work. Using the current literature and empirical studies undertaken during this project the paper presents a non-exhaustive set of requirements for use in assessing such strategies. This paper contributes a set of 9 scenarios that can be used to as part of a method for assessing the appropriateness and eventual success of implementations proposed to improve the use of email in engineering and communicate critical challenges to industry.
