    My suggestion:

    Dear [RECEIVER'S NAME],

    I would like to discuss with you regarding the E-mail which was sent to me by the 'Human Resources Specialist' yesterday; my preference goes to have a phone conversation.

    I will appreciate it indeed if you let me know that according to your convenience, when we can discuss about it.

    Best regards / [YOURNAME].

    Hello Mega,
    I'm sorry, but this is not natural. The suggestions give prior to yours is fine. The parts I've put into italics are problems in your suggestion.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
