There’s been a couple of interesting articles pop up about email signoffs this week. There was also a fun twitter exchange as a few people shared their practices. It really got me thinking about mine so here we go.
I tend to use this in work or semi-formal situations where I intend to be friendly but don’t presume to know the person particularly well. I also use it at work if I am being “worky”. That is, I’m emailing information to a group of people rather than individuals.
Used in formal situations where I don’t know the recipient or the recipient has peeved me by doing something ridiculous. This is a work only sign off as that’s where the ridiculous things tend to occur.
Used only with people I have met in person and call my friends or close relatives.
Used very sparingly and only with people who I would actually give a hug to in real life.
Never used in my entire emailing life and never will. I hate it.
Yours sincerely, Sincerely, Warm Regards, Best Regards or anything else not on this list.
Never used and cannot see a situation in the future where I ever will.2 Comments »
