This is the most ubiquitous; it's totallysafe. I recommend it highly and so do the experts.
A little stilted. Etiquette consultant Lettlikes it.
My best to you
Lett also likes this one. I think it'sold-fashioned.
All the best
This works too.
Seems too much like a greeting card butit's not bad.
I know people who like this but I find itfussy. Why do you need the extra "s"?
More formal than the ubiquitous"Best". I use this when I want a note of formality.
Fine, anodyne, helpfully brief. I use this.
I used to use this but stopped, becauseit's trying too hard to be abbreviated. Why not type three more letters? OK ifyou're sending it from your phone.
I like this for a personal email to someoneyou don't know very well, or a business email that is meant as a thank-you.
As good as Warm Regards, with a touch ofadded heat.
I use this often for personal emails,especially if I'm close to someone but not in regular touch.
This is a nice riff on the "warm"theme that can safely be used among colleagues.
这是一个关于 “warm” 主题很好的结尾，在同事之间使用很安全。
In the right instances, especially forpersonal emails, this works.
Lett says this is a no-no. "This isnot a closing. It's a thank-you," she insists. I disagree. ForbesLeadership editor Fred Allen uses it regularly and I think it's an appropriate,warm thing to say. I use it too.
Thanks so much
I also like this and use it, especiallywhen someone—a colleague, a source, someone with whom I have a businessrelationship—has put time and effort into a task or email.
This rubs me the wrong way because I usedto have a boss who ended every email this way. She was usually asking me toperform a task and it made her sign-off seem more like a stern order, with aforced note of appreciation, than a genuine expression of gratitude. But in theright context, it can be fine.
More formal than "Thanks." I usethis sometimes.
This doesn't have the same grating qualityas "Thanks!" The added "you" softens it.
I use this a lot, when I genuinelyappreciate the effort the recipient has undertaken.
Thanks for your consideration.
A tad stilted with a note of servility,this can work in the business context, though it's almost asking for arejection. Steer clear of this when writing a note related to seekingemployment.
I predict this will gain in popularity asour emails become more like texts.
Hope this helps
I like this in an email where you aretrying to help the recipient.
I use this too. I think it's gracious andwarm, and shows you are eager to meet with the recipient.
This works when you really are rushing. Itexpresses humility and regard for the recipient.
Also good when you don't have time toproofread.
Some people find this grating. Not appropriatefor a business email.
Retro, this sign-off wears its politics onits sleeve. It doesn't bother me but others might recoil.
I don't like this. It makes me feel likeI'm ten years old and getting a note from a pen pal inSweden.
Same problem as above.
Very Truly Yours
Lett likes this for business emails but Ifind it stilted and it has the pen pal problem.
Lett also likes this but to me, it signalsthat the writer is stuck in the past. Maybe OK for some formal businesscorrespondence, like from the lawyer handling your dead mother's estate.
Same problem as "Sincerely," buthokier.
I wonder how prevalent this is in theUK.I've only seen it from Americans who are trying for a British affectation. Iknow it shouldn't grate on me but it does. I also don't like people telling meto cheer up.
Pretentious for an English-speaker, thoughI can see using it in a personal, playful email.
Terse but just fine in many circumstances.Probably not a good idea for an initial email.
Good if you know the recipient and evenfine in a business context if it's someone with whom you correspond frequently.
This seems too informal, like over-sharingin the business context.
I've heard of this being used in businessemails but I don't think it's a good idea.
Lots of love
I would only use this in a personal email.The "lots of" makes it even more inappropriately effusive than thesimple, clean “Love.”
It's hard to imagine this in a businessemail but it's great when you're writing to your granny.
Emoticons are increasingly accepted, thoughsome people find them grating. I wouldn't sign off this way unless I werewriting to my kid.
I've gotten emails from colleagues withthese symbols and I find they brighten my day.
I'm a sucker for variations on the smileyface made with punctuation marks, though I suspect most people don't like them.
Highfive from down low
A colleague shared this awful sign-offwhich is regularly used by a publicist who handles tech clients. An attempt tosound cool, which fails.
Take it easy bro
Though it might turn some people off, Iwould be fine receiving an email with this sign-off, knowing the sender livesin an informal milieu.
See you around
Lett would cringe but this seems fine tome.
Have a wonderful bountiful lustful day
It's weird and off-putting.
Sent from my iPhone
This may be the most ubiquitous sign-off.It used to bother me but I realize that it explains brevity and typos.
Typoscourtesy of my iPhone
Slightly clever but it's gotten old. Betterto use the automated message.
Sent from a prehistoric stone tablet
I laughed the first time I read it but thenthe joke wore thin.
Pardon my monkey thumbs
Same problem here.
Please consider the environment before printing this e-mail.
A preachy relic of the past. Who doesn'tknow that printing uses paper?
I think these are a great idea. At leastthey work well on my Dell desktop when I want to load a contact into Outlook.
This email is off the record unless otherwise indicated.
I'm wondering what kind of paranoid peopleput this in their signatures.
We've all seen these and ignored them,though I understand that many companies require them. Forbes' in-house legalcounsel, Kai Falkenberg, says she knows of no cases that have relied on legaldisclaimers, though she says they might serve as persuasive evidence in a tradesecrets case where a party was attempting to keep information confidential.
1.Don't include quotes.
2. Avoid oversized corporate logos.Sometimes we have no choice about this, because our companies insist we includethese things, but if they are too big, they draw the eye away from the message.
3. Include your title and contact info, butkeep it short. In most business emails, you're doing the person a favor bysharing your vital information. But make it minimal. E.g., "Susan Adams,Senior Editor, Forbes 212-206-5571."
4. Do include some kind of sign-off.
