    Hi I am writing emails to clients, and wonder apart from "I trust you are well/ I hope this email find you well" is there anything else I can write at the start of email? No need to be too formal.

    Many thanks

    Hello tamat, and welcome to the forum.

    "I trust you are well/ I hope this email finds you well"

    Either of these are fine. It's a good, polite and friendly start. You don't need to write anything else. It's an e-mail, not an essay.

    Thanks a lot for your reply

    so it is ok that i use either of these on my emails, even I am writing to the same person right?
     
  4. What do you mean by "even if I am writing to the same person"? Are you asking if it's OK to use either of these phrases in successive e-mails to the same person? Yes, it's OK, but only if a reasonable amount of time has elapsed since you last wrote or talked to the person. It would sound silly to say "I trust you are well" at the start of an e-mail to someone you just talked to the day before.
