Email salutations

An email to 2GB’s Glenn Wheeler

:

Good evening Glenn,

I hate receiving emails which just start with “Samuel” and have no “dear” or “hi” or whatever…to me, such emails feel like the person sending it is angry and about to spend the whole email barking instructions at me.

If I’m in the middle of a long email exchange with someone, I might drop the introduction all together and just have the body of the message with no names or salutations, but I’ll try to avoid just using the recipient’s name as the introduction…unless I am genuinely unhappy with the recipient!

I hope you’re keeping well. You’ve been looking well on The Morning Show of late.

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart
Canberra
