Why email sign-offs matter 

The primary purpose of a closing greeting is to present the sender. Beyond that, the closing phrase is intended to be pleasant and appropriate for the situation and the relationship. They’re an important part of email etiquette.  

Ways to end an email in English 

Email signoffs are usually brief, comprised of only a couple of words or a short phrase. There are many ways to end emails in English, so we have collected examples of greetings that fit various contexts. 

For formal emails and businesses – examples 

When you write an email to a company, workplace, or government agency, you must end the email formally. There are different ways to do this. Here are some examples: 

Kind regards,

To friends 

When writing to someone with whom you have established contact, you can write in a more relaxed manner. A relaxed greeting can also fit when an email conversation has been ongoing for a long time, and the message is brief. Depending on your relationship with the receiver, you might opt to use simply your first name instead of your full name for the signature.  

Cheers,  
Henry  

Take care,  
Henry Webb 

Best,  
Henry Webb 

Talk soon,  
Henry 

Catch you later,  
Henry 

Talk soon!  
Henry 

Take care,  
Henry Webb

End with a good signature 

It’s good to end an email with a signature. A signature can include information about the sender’s title or role, information about the company or organisation the person represents, and contact details for the person. Here’s an example:
