    Aruba and email ettiquite

    I am wondering about how emails are dealt with in the normal course of business in Aruba. I ask this as I have had to deal with a number of people and businesses by email. I find that many emails do not get any response. Is this because the business may not offer the service/product and therefore by not responding, they have responded?? I have experienced this with SETAR, Arubabank, Maduro Shipping and others.

    What have others experienced with email response.

    I tried contacting Zendri NV. This is the first time we are usuing this service (leaving our belongings in Aruba). They told us to email them 3 weeks before our arrival, which I did. I asked them to just return an email letting me know they received mine and I never heard back. We are arriving Sat. and hope I will have clothes to wear!

    Email, like the regular post it would seem, is much like anything else on Aruba.
    MANANA.
    It's just a fact of life, unfortunate as that may be for the rest of the world that has a fast pace to maintain.
    If only we could all live at that pace, wouldn't it be a wonderful world?

    Does this happen when a request is automatically asked for?

    This will happen when the E is opened.

    My experience is that SETAR never answers email.
    I correspond to a couple of Aruba business pretty regularly and getting a reply is sometimes like pulling teeth.

    Email just isn't the way to go in Aruba. Sometimes even phone calls don't work dealing with the government. Aruba is a very 'face to face' place.

    As an aruban... I can say most everybody here on the island has a Blackberry, tradition of Blackberry is: Email arrives, they open and read it and say that they will answer it when they are at the PC, that sometimes never happens..LOL

    Very true! LOL!!


    The few businesses I do correspond with regularly though do get back to me within 24 hours so I guess I'm lucky.

    I use a combo of emails and phone by calling to confirm emails.I also set up a yahoo and verizon acount as sometimes one or the other may not be funtioning in Aruba . Business can be a little slow but short calls and emails or scanned items seem to work
