What does NNTR mean in emails?

No need to reply

If you’ve ever received an email that ends with NNTR, it means that the sender does not expect a response from you. This is usually the case when the email contains straightforward details that don’t need further clarification or discussion.

You might find yourself using NNTR when you’re sharing simple information, like the agenda for the next office meeting with your colleagues. Or, maybe you’re emailing your family about your birthday wish list. In these scenarios, you’re just providing information and don’t need a reply, making NNTR the perfect sign-off.

While NNTR is most commonly used in emails, it’s not limited to just that. You might see it pop up in online messaging or even text messages. For instance, if your girlfriend is driving, you might text her, “Be there soon. NNTR”, letting her know you’re on your way and she doesn’t need to text back.

Example for using ‘NNTR’ in a conversation

Hey, do you have any plans for this weekend?

Not really, just going to relax and catch up on some shows. You?

I’m thinking of having a small get-together at my place on Saturday. Just wanted to check if you’re free.

Sounds fun! Count me in! What time should I come?

Great! Let’s say 7 PM. I’ll send you the address later. NNTR.

Got it! Looking forward to it. See you on Saturday!
