    Question What are the idioms usually used in closing an Email?

    Hey, everyone~
    I'm a Chinese student. I only know two idioms in closing an email, written to an acquainted friend, "Take care~", "Talk to you soon/later~". Would you please introduce more?
    Thank you for your help~

    Thank you, Irina~

    But, what does "Cheers" mean here?
    You know, the one I've learned is used as a toast,
    so, maybe, here, it simply means, "be happy"?

    Thank you~

    'Cheers' can be used as a way of sating 'thank you', and is very common in British English. It can also be used an informal way of ending an email, with a mixture of 'thanks' and 'goodbye'.
