It is really getting my goat now, what was wrong with signing off with "thanks Dave" or "speak soon Tracey"? Who has brainwashed all these numpties to end every email with the "best regards" sign off?
Please be original folks and don't subscribe to this conformance mentality.

not a clue Best Regards

Best regards: A valediction (derivation from Latin vale dicere "to say farewell") is an expression used to say farewell, especially at the end of a letter, or the act of saying parting words- whether brief, or extensive....

I hate it as well everyone in my company says kindest regards or kind regards

It's easier to use an auto signature than type it in every email!!

Oi! I quite like the best regards signing off practice. Makes it much quicker to get a mail fired off if I don't have to think of something snappy to add at the end. Everyone knows best regards does not actually mean I send you my best regards, and it's a happy compromise It's much better than sending some other randomly generated platitude when you couldn't give a toss about the person.

I almost forgot....Best Regards :p

It's a bit like asking someone how they are, but you dont want them to tell you
or at least you want them to lie and say im fine, but you will always get one who goes into detail about his diarrhoea

Its a good way to end an email - yours sincerely/faithfully are too formal and ending it with a thanks isn't always appropriate......"kind regards" is also quite common.

I don't see the problem at all.

For a formal email, signing off with Best Regards seems right.

Yours truly,

How to end letters or messages was one of those things my parents drilled into me as a child.
You use:
'Yours sincerely' when you know their name eg Dear Mr Brookes
'Yours faithfully' when you do not know their name eg To whom it may concern
'Best Regards' when want to be less formal eg Dear Jessica.

lmao Best regards i know what you mean :-D
tbh it just takes the hassle out of it when you don't know the person your emailing...
I email a lot managers i've never heard of before so sending them hugs 'n kisses might give them the wrong idea :w00t:

But if i know them its usually less formal, and I end with cheers :thumbsup:
