Question Email Closing...what do you use? Regards, Sincerely, Respectfully, or maybe nothing

I don't like when people use respectfully or sincerely. Nothing seems a bit cold. My preference is regards, but lately, I've switched to "warm regards" or "kind regards".

What's your email closing preference?

It varies, depending on the context of the email. Usually just my name. Often in a professional context, especially with someone I don't know, I will use Regards.

I find in more casual emails, I will use LMK (let me know), because the content of the email often requires a response.

Totally depends on who I'm communicating with. I've never liked "regards" or any variant and have never used it. If I'm in a festive mood, it's usually "cheers". If it's a hawt chyk and I'm flirting, I might throw a "ciao" at her. If it's purely business I'll generally give the old bland "Thanks" or nothing at all.

I almost always use "sincerely"

It's usually not too formal and it's never not formal enough. It also allows you to not have to think of what to use.

Sincerely,

wbbigtymer

Thanks,

In all seriousness, if we're talking about a business email then it's just a modern day memo that doesn't require a salutation. The standard at my office is that the last sentence is your sign-off, followed by your name (and in some situations, contact info other than email when appropriate).

For example:

If your email contains a response to requested info, you end with:
Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional assistance/information. / Let me know if this doesn't work for you./ I hope this helps. (depending on the level of formality)
Sabine

If you're seeking something from someone else, then the following would be acceptable:
I look forward to hearing from you soon./ Thank you for your assistance./Your prompt attention is appreciated./ Thanks for your help.
Sabine

If your email is a reply that rebuts or disputes the addressee's email, or if you are in opposing positions, then a respectful salutation is appropriate, such as:
Respectfully,
Sabine

If not covered in the body of the email, the last line covers your courtesy requirements.

If we're talking about emails between friends/family then it is whatever you like.
