    Hi,

    Is "Inquire after his health on my behalf/on behalf of mine" correct?

    Re: on my behalf/on behalf of mine

    "On my behalf" is correct. "On behalf of mine" is never used in my experience.

    Re: on my behalf/on behalf of mine

    '...on behalf of me' would be grammatical, but unnatural.
