I am struggling with the idea of using the mentions function in Microsoft Outlook. It seems to me that while it can increase effectiveness of identifying action items it seems to me that having an @name in email is not professional.

What are the thoughts of the community?

I think it just takes time to get used to that format that Office is using. I have found the tags to be productive but they sometimes look out of place. I wish you could change the formatting to look more professional. My former manager asked that I chage the format but....Office won't let you do that. He just said he would just have to get used to it.

I believe that everything is subjective to that person reading the e-mail. Use of @name is pretty popular nowadays. I never see it as not professional. But there are people who think so. So be careful about who you are sending the e-mail.
