Curious to see the results of this poll in a week.
@bernadette_cau Me too! What is your opinion on the subject? Are you more a sender or a receiver in this problem?

Can't reply to both questions in the poll so here are my answers : I prefer a detailed email with personalized reasons of the contact than just a very short generic email. By "detailed" I mean approximately 10 lines, 15 maximum. For the greeting, I do personally care about greeting in introduction. A "hello" is the minimum for me, but I don't care much about greeting at the end. However I can't see myself sending an email without greeting!

Yes, I prefer precise and to-the-point emails, and I reply to the first email formally.

Yes short description to know for what reasons I am solicited. Then, having the choice to get in touch if I'm interested with tool like https://calendly.com/ where I can schedule a meeting myself.

What's the problem with greeting people anyway? I mean, you do say hi to anyone you meet in person, why should email be any different? IMHO It's just so easy to say hi that it's not worth debating whether or not we should do it:)
