Would it kill you to respond to email requests like a normal human being? Is it so hard to start a reply with "Dear so and so," maybe add a thank you or "sincerely" at the end? One terse sentence is not the proper way to respond to people, you tool! Is this what you learned in law school? No, it's just your personality, or lack thereof.

Guilty as charged! Except for the lawschool bit. I rarely use salutations because, well, I don't see the need. The answer is the important part, not the niceties.

I'm with p'nut. It is an email, not a letter to my Victorian lady friend in England, telling her about all of my adventures in America.

Completely disagree. When you represent a company to a client/customer/whatever, it requires a certain level of decorum. Terse sentences are fine internally, even to a follow-up, but not the initial contact. People write e-mails in lieu of writing letters these days because it is a faster way to contact.

I agree for external emails but, despite your protestations to the contrary, I think you are also peeved when people do this on internal emails.
