Questions about how to open and close formal emails keep appearing in forums. There seem to be a number of ideas and no consensus, so I was wondering what people use.
I use the same salutation and closing as I would in formal letters where I don't know the person (Dear Sir or Madam, ..... yours faithfully,) or for first contact (Dear Mr\Ms X, ... yours sincerely,).
However, I have noticed that I find myself using first names quite quickly.
At work I generally use no salutation and end with 'Regards'.
