    Post Using Yours to signoff in an e-mail

    Hi,

    I was wondering whether the usage of Yours in an e-mail in private, official or impersonal communications. Does it carry any relevance in those terms? I would appreciate a clarity on the usage of Yours to signoff e-mails.

    Thanks in advance.

    Shyaam

    You can consume the following terms instead.
    Sincerely Yours
    Truly Yours
    Best Wishes
    Love

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by the question, but people do use 'yours' in less formal comunication, letters and emails. It's a little less formal than the full phrase. however, most emails I get use things like 'Regards', or 'Best regards'.
