I definitely vary my email style depending on the recipient...

* With email to people I don't know I will usually at least sign on / sign off ("Dear X or "Hi X" at the beginning, some kind of "Yours/Thanks/Regards" at the end).

* Email to colleagues tends to be much less formally structured (but may still be formal in tone if they're senior to me -- just doesn't need all the "Dear X" apparatus).

* Email to friends reads like far-too-accurately transcribed speech... :-}

I rather like your senior colleague's style. Looks like something from an 18th century novel. :)

To WAPPING to meet my Esteemed Friend Sir M----- W------ whereupon we visited the THEATRE and thence to a TAVERN in the company of a Pair of SAUCY WHORES. I did then REFER the STUDENTS to the Faculty Board ---- for MISCONDUCT.

I am second marking the first year numerical analysis scripts this afternoon. Actually I am not at this precise moment, but I should be.
