I see this all the time in emails. I also see "Regards." I don't know
about you, but to me it seems rather cold.



"Regards" seems very abrupt. I would rather see "Kind regards," "Sincere
regards" or "Warm regards." None of these modifiers seem to go well with
"thanks."



Don't know what to do with "Thanks." In emails, it has become standard
boilerplate and doesn't mean anything.



I usually try to say "Thank you." Even that rings hollow at times.



What do you folks use?
