In the right instances, especially for personal emails, this works.
Lett says this is a no-no. "This is not a closing. It's a thank-you," she insists. I disagree. Forbes Leadership editor Fred Allen uses it regularly and I think it's an appropriate, warm thing to say. I use it too.
This rubs me the wrong way because I used to have a boss who ended every email this way. She was usually asking me to perform a task and it made her sign-off seem more like a stern order, with a forced note of appreciation1, than a genuine expression of gratitude2. But in the right context, it can be fine.
More formal than "Thanks." I use this sometimes.
Thanks so much
I also like this and use it, especially when someone -- a colleague, a source, someone with whom I have a business relationship -- has put time and effort into a task or email.
Thanks for your consideration.
A tad stilted5 with a note of servility, this can work in the business context, though it's almost asking for a rejection6. Steer7 clear of this when writing a note related to seeking employment.
I predict this will gain in popularity as our emails become more like texts.
Hope this helps
I like this in an email where you are trying to help the recipient.
I use this too. I think it's gracious and warm, and shows you are eager to meet with the recipient.
