Please, help me!
I want to send an e-mail to someone I've seen once. Unfortunately I don't know his name. Should I start with: "Dear Sir"? and finish with "Yours Sincerely"??
This e-mail is quite short and that's what I want to say:
"Enclosed are the pictures for my album.
If you have any questions..." etc.
Which form is correct? How should I do it? I'm confused
What is the nature of your relationshiph with him? Is he performing a service that you are paying him for? Is he someone working with your boss on a project?
Sometimes with an e-mail you can just get away with a just "Hello" for a greeting and omit a closing, aside from "Thanks,"
Please let me know if...
I agree with Barb - e-mails allow more informal approaches, It might help to remind the person that you had met :
"Hello, I am xxxx. If you remember, we met at yyyy. "
If you are to be formal, start with 'Dear Sir' and end with 'Yours faithfully' - in case you don't know the name of the recipient. If you know the name, write "Dear Mr (Adams,)" and end with "Yours sincerely, Caroline".
