Is there a good professional way to acknowledge the fact that you're mailing someone for the first time or, in my case, that you're new to an organisation/team? I've been opening a lot of emails with a "Pleased to meet you!" lately but it's annoying the pedantic part of my brain. I'm struggling to find a decent alternative though. "Delighted to e-meet you" makes me cringe while "making someone's acquaintance" feels like something my grandparents did.
Are there any good concise ways to phrase this kind of self-introduction? I can avoid it in longer mails by actually introducing myself but I'm now sending first emails to a load of new people where I might not want to go into all that.
I'm probably overthinking all this, but with remote work remaining the norm it feels like I'll keep meeting people mainly through email in future so I'm hoping to improve my virtual introduction game.
