Hello again! We have the great pleasure of bringing you the @Work edition for Thursday. (Now aren't you glad you peeked into your inbox?)
INCOMING / OUTGOING (MAIL)
- Incoming mail, phone calls, etc., are RECEIVED at your end.
Outgoing mail, phone calls, etc., are SENT or MADE from your end.

郵便物や電話などについて outgoing と言うと、自分の方から送ったり、かけたりするものをさします。
- (job description)
The receptionist answers incoming calls and forwards them to the appropriate department in a timely and efficient manner.
- (hotel employee to guest)
I'm sorry, but this phone can't be used for outgoing calls. You'll have to use the payphone in the lobby or the phone in your room.
- You can put any outgoing mail in this box. The people in the mailroom pick it up twice a day.
Now that you know what outgoing MAIL is, do you remember what it means for a PERSON to be outgoing? Click the link or (if you're not viewing our Web version) check out our online archives to find out!
