1. Use of salutation in emails:
In German some salutations are overly formal and seem very weird whereas others are too casual and seem disrespectful. Even if you're talking with the same person, you might need to use different ones in different situations.
Do you know exactly when to use which salutation?
Dear Mr. M.
Hello Mr. M.
Good morning, Mr. M.

2. Variation in your emails:
There are many phrases or fragments of phrases in emails like these:
“Thank you for your message.”
“We’re letting you know that ...”
“Thank you in advance.”
“Please feel free to contact us with any questions.”
“Yours sincerely” or “Kind regards.”
Do you feel that sentences or sentence fragments like these no longer sound good because you have used over and over - but you don’t know what else to write?

We often need to ask a question from someone about a detail in a project or plan. Can you ask precisely and clearly so that you get the answer you need without having to send more than one email?

When you get an email that has errors - do you notice the errors?
Do they somehow draw your attention away from what the person is trying to say?
