With Regards to Valediction

Over here at Xobni we’re always interested in anything email – so we were naturally pretty intrigued to find this cool survey from our friends at lifehacker.com. They asked readers “How do you end your emails.” I’m personally a bit surprised that “regards” beat out “best” by so much!

    You’re only surprised because you have a US-centric view of the world. ‘Best’ may be de rigeur in the US, but elsewhere it clearly is not.

    I give a lot of thought to my email ending before I hit the Send button. (much more than the greetings to start with like Dear, Hi, Hello,……..).
    It depends on different things for me, who is the email addressed to, if its a personal email or formal , a holiday greeting email, to elders….
    Ending have changed even with the same person (eg. for my ex-manager earlier it would end more formally, now that he is an ex, occasional seasons greetings are more informally ended).

    Sometimes my ending statement is much larger than my entire email 🙂
    Like With Best Wishes and Personal Regards

    Warm Wishes,
