    Hello!

    When שלומך is pronounced as "shlomkhá" it is said to a male; when it is pronounced as "shlomékh" it is said to a female.
    Is that right? Could you guys confirm this to me?

    And could you please also tell me if this is a common greeting? Or do you prefer "ma nishmá" or "ma koré"?

    Thanks!! :)

    Right indeed.

    This is a very common greeting, albeit a tiny bit more formal than the others you have mentioned, like How are you? vs. What's up?.
