I usually go with "thank you" but it seems silly when there's nothing to thank them for, like when I send them a file they asked me for.

^ tis why I go with regards or best regards.  But then again, larger companies typically have a pre-defined email signature standard. ;)

This is a good question. I've seen:

Take care,

Best regards,

Kind regards,

Cheers,

"Sincerely" is too formal for most emails, but some of the others seem awkward. I'd like to hear what other people use.

I have a standard work signature with my name and number.  For personal email, I just use "-Dex" but sometimes include my cell #. 

 

I try to avoid "regards" because the "g" and "t" keys are too close for comfort...

If it needs a thanks, I write thanks. If it doesn't, they just get my name.

Regards, followed with our company mandated signature at the bottom (name, company, division, phone, email, etc.)

Regards, followed by company formatted signature...I use two computers, my company and client company. Each email address has a specific signature format designated by the respective company.

Regards is incorporated into my automatic signature since I'm lazy and for Dex's reasoning. If I need to thank someone, which is often, I put it in the body of the email.

My Outlook at work is set up to sign everything with:

v/r,

Name, P.E.

Project Engineer

VA Blah, Blah, Blah

No phone numbers though...don't want to make it too easy for people to get ahold of me.

^^ There's a guy here that uses V/R here too.  It was the first time I'd seen it.

There are some people here that have "Regards," followed by signature too.  They must sometimes forget because from time to time I see:

Thanks,

Regards,

Name...

For those in the military, it's always (supposed to be!) "Respectfully," or "Very respectfully,", oftentimes abbreviated just R/, or V/r/,  And whoa to them who get it backwards.  But not me...  I don't play that!

Seems like everyone in the PHS does the "V/r" thing, only a handful spell the whole thing out.

Aside from that, I usually just go with the '"Thanks".  It may not always make sense, but it's warm and polite, and you can't go wrong with that.
