E-mails in Cyprus

Postby devil » Mon Nov 08, 2004 5:13 pm

Over the past year, I have sent many tens of e-mails to companies in Cyprus, often asking for quotations, enquiring about services etc.

Most often, I do not receive an answer.

For example, an enquiry about car insurance was sent to 11 companies. I received one answer. Another enquiry for a lap-top sent to 15 companies solicited just two replies.

Last week, I sent out eight enquiries about IT material and services, including a support info request and only one was answered - from England!!! (needless to say, I'm still waiting for the support!).

Can someone inform me which is the reason:
- nobody can read
- nobody can be bothered to read
- nobody knows how to download their e-mails
- nobody can write
- nobody can be bothered to write
- nobody knows how to send e-mails?

Just to compound things, if I phone a company and say that I'm awaiting an answer to an e-mail, I'm inevitably told that it was never received. I'll allow that this may happen once in a blue moon, but this excuse is so frequent that it can only be a blatant lie in most cases.

When are Cypriot companies going to start using e-mail seriously, like their EU partners have been doing for over 10 years?.

I have to agree with you .... very frustrating ...... if companies don't want to get emails then don't list a flipping email address on your website.

Unfortunately most Cypriot companies have not realized yet the potential of the internet. Most of them believe that its just for advertising.

We still have a long way to go to catch up with the rest of the EU on this!
