    Does it come form an email?
    If so, it might mean: I hope you are well when you receive my email.

    I see. Thank you, Banderas! No, I heard it from a movie, and was wondering what it really meant.

    Thanks again!

    The phrase can be found in both email and snail mail (regular mail), and it means:
    I wish you good health.
