    Tenses

    "Should we receive an e-mail from you, we will assume that we are entitled to reply by e-mail, unless you have explicitly requested a different form of communication."

    "Should we receive an e-mail from you, we assume that we are entitled to reply by e-mail, unless you explicitly request a different form of communication."

    Should we receive an e-mail from you, we assume that we are entitled to reply by e-mail, unless you have explicitly requested a different form of communication.

    I like the first version best. How about you?

    Thanks!

    To me, this clause implies a future "sense". So, the first sentence seems to be the best.
