    Päivää,

    In English, private messages (e-mail or otherwise) will often end in the following sort of way:

    You don't necessarily *need* to say "let me know" in this type of context, but many people consider it polite to do so nonetheless.

    What about in Finnish? Is there a phrase that functions like "Please let me know" in the above context, or is it more common to simply make a request and then say "thanks"?

    Kiitos

    I'm quite used to use this "please let me know" when writing in English, but only now I realized that in Finnish there is no equivalent phrase, as far as I know. In a similar situation I would write for example:

    "Kiitos jos teillä oli aikaa tutustua ehdotukseeni. Jos se kiinnostaa teitä, kerron mielelläni lisää."

    Maybe other Finns can help you better.

    Thanks Hakro. It wasn't until I thought about this question that I noticed the redundancy of "Please let me know" in English.
