Hi,

An e-mail is, IMO, the online equivalent of a memo. Do memos typically contain salutations?


This really surprises me due to your assumed age. The term 'Netiquette' started appearing back in the 1970's and there are actually entire sections dedicated to the e-mail formalities in several of my old Unix manuals/books.

I've always observed that the older generation uses a more formal style of communication. It's the later generations that uses a more informal communication style.

u knw what i mean?

Best Wishes,
