"____ email"

< Previous | Next >


English - UK
I'm looking for a word.

When you look for a job, you might send out lots of letters and emails to companies just on the off-chance that they'll have a job available.

This is called a "____ email"

Can anyone think of the word I'm looking for?

    Maybe a "query"?

    I see people using "speculative" for this type of e-mail/letter/application. I'd call the entire process "putting out feelers", and of course phoning is "cold calling".
