Email Opening Lines That can be often used


One thing I have realized after being in management and customer service for 6 years is that you can never find an opening line for your emails to be sent on the first day of the week after a weekend. I have spent 6 years writing happy Monday and nothing about my email was taken in interest with such a headline on a Monday morning. So today i am going to go with your over some headlines that can be used in your email on a Monday and most of the week.

If You Need Something Formal

  • Allow Me to Introduce Myself
  • Good afternoon
  • Good morning
  • How are you?
  • Hope this email finds you well
  • I hope you enjoyed your weekend
  • I hope you’re doing well
  • I hope you’re having a great week
  • I hope you’re having a wonderful day
  • It’s great to hear from you
  • I’m eager to get your advice on…
  • I’m reaching out about…
  • Thank you for your help
  • Thank you for the update
  • Thanks for getting in touch
  • Thanks for the quick response

If You’re Following Up on Something

  • As promised, I’m…
  • As we discussed on our call…
  • Can you provide me with an update on…
  • I’m checking in on…
  • I’m getting back to you about…
  • To follow up on our meeting…

If You Want to Get (Appropriately) Personal

  • Congratulations on [recent accomplishment]
  • How did [recent project] turn out?
  • I hope you enjoyed your [event or vacation]
  • I loved Your recent [photo/article/social media post]
  • I was just laughing the other day about [inside joke]
  • I was just thinking about you and [shared memory]
  • It was great to see you at [event]
  • This [article/video/GIF] made me think of you
  • [Mutual Contact] recommended I get in touch with you
  • If You’re Feeling Funny
    Happy “Not Monday”
  • Hello from the other side
  • Here’s the good news: Only [number] more days until Friday
  • Hope you’re surviving another workweek
  • I hope you’ve had your coffee already
  • It’s me again
  • I’ll keep this short
  • I’m sorry if this Message sabotaged “inbox zero” for you
  • Just what you want: another email!


It’s necessary to keep in mind that not all of these opening lines will be appropriate for every email you send. A significant client or your boss, for example, will probably require something from the “formal” level. But, a close colleague or long-time friend? Well, he or she might get a kick out of a funny greeting that strays from the tried and true standards.

At any rate, there’s no need to follow in my footsteps and begin every single one of your messages with the same greeting. Now that I have this list pulled together, you can bet I’ll be using it as inspiration for all of my emails—and, I think you should too. i am sure you will get the hang out of it and everything comes with practice but these are just small examples to set you on the right track i hope i helped ,
