Sending a mail

hi all…

Hope everyone is in the same well . :smiley: ok let me put it better , that was long time we talked.

I always have a problem sending mail to someone especially after a long time.

It has been a long time since we have mailed .
Hope you are doing well.
How is life ?
Long time no mail ?

Please pass on your suggestions on How to start a mail ?

Helle Drahul,

Thanks for bringing up this question. You have already made a number of suggestions as to how you can start an email or a letter. I think what phrase to choose depends on the relationship you have with the person you are writing to. If it’s long time friend a less formal start will do. If it’s a potential business partner you should use different words.
I have found that it is always good to open a letter by referring to a previous exchange I had with the person.[YSaerTTEW443543]
