Of the two options, “Thanks and regards” is correct and perfectly appropriate for a business e-mail. Regards should not be capitalized when used mid-sentence.
Use just one. Either is appropriate.
Point of: It’s better to err on the side of caution and be more formal in any written exchange
Email can and be used against an individual. So it’s better to err on the side of caution. A few pointers to consider each time one writes email:
1. Will one be happy to identify with the contents of that email in say 10 years time?
2. Would the same email be written tomorrow? This is especially useful when one is emotional and that same email could come to haunt in future or be a source of regret. This is why experts recommend that one refrain from sending an email in an emotional state. Best to type it and then keep it in draft. If one still feels the same the next day, send the email after review
3. Would also recommend that email be treated as formal correspondence. Hence, the appropriate address. Personally, would write emails as Dear Mr. X and then end with Sincerely, Kind Regards or whatever is appropriate in the relationship. Keep to the facts
Ok this sounds paranoid but it’s just my 2 cents 🙂
Emails are about brevity and concise clear word usage.
Flowery closes are almost annoying.
You hit one or the other. Not both.
Emails by their nature are less formal that written letters, so no widely accepted etiquette has been established. Write whatever you feel is appropriate. Some people use emails so frequently and casually that they dispense with salutations, wishes, and even names, altogether.
You may say this:
I highly appreciate your response to my message. [You can insert a response to what they’ve sent you]

Well, it’s a great way to end almost any communication, for a start. I wish I had a few contextual details so I could advise you in a more exact fashion, but there are many ways to go about it. If you want a response to a business matter, or you are making some kind of request, you could say, “Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!” If you are simply expressing gratitude you might try, “I really appreciate your help with XYZ. Thank you for everything.”
Or, if you are expressing gratitude and specifically want to encourage formation of a new relationship you might try, “Thank you so much for all of your help recently. If there is anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I would love to connect again. Perhaps for Zoom coffee or a socially distant drink?” Just be sincere, be specific about what you’re thanking the person for and perhaps how it impacted you, and your expression of gratitude should be received in the spirit it was given. Good luck!
Honestly it doesn’t make much difference.
But writing it out of habit or as a closure, is perfectly fine.
You’re being polite and thanking the person for spending some of his limited time on reading what you have to say. At micro level, you’re being considerate, which is good.
But at macro level, nobody cares.
So there’s no harm in writing it.
Thanks for A2A.
Thank you for your time! 😀
Good day! 🙂
Graciously. In closing. Looking forward. Until another time/Until a later time. Salutations. With regards. Respectfully. Cordially.
I would have gone anonymous but then I chose not to.
I was having suicidal tendency, I tried hanging myself. I have been in depression for a month and I thought ending myself up is the best thing I could do.
But then I came across Quora. Some writers like Rana Ashish , Alcatraz Dey , User-10620074000046520171, Vijay Odedra and their answers amused me a lot. I also thought of writing but I didn’t have words.
I dropped a message to User-10620074000046520171 . Our conversation was something like this :
I was hesitating to call. But I called finally.
I cried my heart out. He is 2 years younger to me but he seemed like an elder brother consoling me. He told me to shout my heart out without being judged. I did so, and he told me things which I haven’t realised before.
He even told me to consult a psychiatrist as soon as possible. I did and currently I am on medication.
I am quite fine now. I called him even at 1 am and he picked up when I was getting panic attack. A wonderful person.I just want to thank this guy for being so helpful and kind. He is one of the nicest person ever. Perhaps if I had not messaged him that day,I would not be alive today.
