How to name email attachments

Here is a suggestion. If you send a homework assignment or a resume as
an attachment, please consider that the person receiving it (an
instructor or potential employer) is likely to get such submissions
from other people as well. If you name your submission “HW1.tar.gz” or
“resume.pdf”, chances are that your recipient will have other files
with the same name. It is much better to name your file with some
identifying information about yourself, e.g., your name or user id, e.g., “HW1-CS499-johnson.tar.gz” or “Alice.Smith.resume.pdf”.
