Revenge of Dear

Posted by middlerage on February 7, 2013

Just a quick update to my post on the use of the opening,  “Dear” in emails. I am in a new job (yay!) in a different field (hmm), but still in a STEM field, and this new field is even more (than my last field of climatology) into using the salutation Dear in emails among colleagues.  Really it is only used on initial contact – after which they go back to “hiya Bob,” but the backwaters of STEM are keeping Dear alive.

    I use Mr or Ms now, the emails were getting too informal and it was hard to determine who wants the formality. my use of greetings and saluations was not always appriciated
