I also e-mail recommendations, and have not had a complaint yet.
Generally, I give mine a subject line like "Golden Snipehunt
recommendation for Lady Muckety". Also, a tip I have heard from multiple
people in a position to be sent recommendations - don't just say "I
think Lady Muckety deserves a Golden Snipehunt" - say WHY, in as much
detail as you can fit into one or two paragraphs. The more information
the person you are writing to has, especially if they don't know Lady
Muckety from Adam's housecat, the likelier they are to want to learn
enough to give the award.
