    Re: e-mail

    Welcome to Using English.

    "wish regards" is meaningless. Don't ever use it.
    I've seen "warm regards" (which implies you know the person well) and "best wishes" (which is appropriate in some settings but not all) but not "best regards."

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
