It is good Netiquette not to assume anything. Don't take anything for granted beyond what is included in a message.
Assumptions are not facts or opinions. They are guesses. An accurate assumption is an educated guess. A guess based on something they have learned. Knowledge, including assumptions, is often taught. If a person does not realize this they are slaves to the person who gave them the information.
Do not jump to conclusions with personal email. Make inferences based on fact. Many people wrongly assume that they are educated for making good assumptions. Information has to be investigated for validity. People have to evaluate online information for themselves.
Common sense must be the standard for personal email message. Sources and resources can verify questionable information. Accuracy is a safety precaution.
No assumptions about the unwritten because it is unreasonable.
