    Default Ending of letter or email

    1. Is it OK to write Mr ABC on the left side of a man's name below the signature in a letter or end an email with Mr ABC in a similar way?

    2. Is it OK to write Miss/Ms/Mrs XYZ on the left side of a woman's name below the signature in a letter or an email with Miss/Ms/Mrs XYZ in a similar way?

    Thanks.

    2. Is it OK to write Miss/Ms/Mrs XYZ on the left side of a woman's name below the signature in a letter or end an email with Miss/Ms/Mrs XYZ, If the woman prefers one of these forms, then you see it. It is quite common to put this in brackets.: (Mrs) Lindsay Dobbs.
