There were many situations I wanted to reply back saying just "Thanks"...

Ex 01: Requesting a leave of absence and when getting a mail that it is approved...

Ex 02: Requesting a some file and when it was received....

Ex 03: Requesting to do something and getting mail that it was done...

There are many times like that....

So I just want to say just thanks.

Then email is be like following.... Last two line are signature.

Hi Name,


Thanks & Regards,

My Name

Is this professional accepted mail? Or should I avoiding sending this types of mails? Then what should I add?

  • Generally, email programs allow you to change the signature on a per-message basis. Maybe when it's just a 'Thanks' email, remove the 'Thanks & Regards' line?

    Whatever you do, please don't reply-all... Dec 19 '17 at 15:50
  • Why does your signature include Thanks and Regards? Emails are not letters, they do not ever need salutations or a complimentary close. I would only include a statement like this is if was the norm at your company. I can tell you that I never get emails form anyone with things like this in it, and I get emails from contractors, fellow employees and customers.

  • @HLGEM You mean, mentioning "Thanks & Regards" at end of the email isn't good or isn't professional? Dec 21 '17 at 4:18

Yes, it's fine.

You may add a little extra to make it a little more friendly.

Thanks, much appreciated


Thanks, that helps a lot.

Try not to say thanks twice as you have done in your example above, it looks a little odd.


That is fine, but a little "odd" presented. I have a automated BR (Best Regard) at the end of every mail I send. If I want to say thanks in that mail, I don't become to repetitive with having

Thanks Thanks & Regard.

Best Regard is friendly enough and you don't sound like a broken record, saying thanks all the time. :)
