    I hope you are well. That’s a good news. Thank you very much ...[preposition?]... what you have done.

    Have a nice day,
    "News" isn't countable.

    "Have a nice day" sounds a bit over-familiar to me, but I'm just a stuffy Brit! It's certainly not wrong, but I'd suggest something like "I look forward to meeting you next Friday" (if this is an email you don't need to repeat exact details).

    I'm most certainly putting my foot(make it both feet) in it right now , but

    what a poor excuse for a language would English be without all those stuffy

    Brits?

    would it be a case of too much if one asked

    "Would / could you possibly be so kind as to let me have....?"
