Hello dear members,

Is it Ok to end an email with the following sentence?

I am sorry if this email causes any inconvenience.

thank you very much

    I can't imagine that receiving the email would be much of an inconvenience. I assume that you are asking the recipient to do something which may possibly cause them some inconvenience so I suggest "I am sorry if this [=request/task] causes you any inconvenience" or "I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause."

    This is one instance where it's very common to use a passive voice construction in English:
    "I am sorry for any inconvenience caused". :)
