E-MAIL TIP NO. 5: Always be honest. If the company has made a mistake, don't try to defend it. Admit it, apologize, and then do what is necessary to correct it. If you don't know the answer to a question, say so--and tell the customer you'll find out and get back to him (make sure you do). A customer respects someone who says, "Unfortunately, we can't help you," rather than to be led astray because the webmaster doesn't want to admit he can't help the customer.
