After every holiday or birthday when I received gifts, my mom made me diligently write out and mail thank you notes the next business day.

When we’re sending emails, it’s easy to be too direct. This can upset the reader or cause offence. Saying “thank you” is a great way to make your email more polite and personal. What’s the best way to do it, though? Find out with our top ten ways to say “thank you” in an English email.

The first five of our ways to show your thanks work best at the beginning of the email. Thanking your reader is a wonderful way of opening an email. It sets the right tone and makes the reader feel appreciated, which is very important if you want them to help you again in the future.

10. Thank you for contacting us

If someone writes to enquire about your company’s services, begin your email with this sentence. Show your appreciation for their interest in working with your company. This is also a useful way to introduce the main topic of your email when used with the prepositions “about” or “regarding”. For example, “Thank you for contacting us regarding our current products and prices.”

9. Thank you for your prompt reply

When a client or colleague replies to a previous email in a short amount of time, let them know and thank them. If the reply wasn’t quick, simply removing “prompt” will work, or, you can opt for, “Thank you for getting back to me.”

8. Thank you for the information

If you have asked someone for information, and they took the time to send it to you, use this sentence to demonstrate that you value what they’ve done. Again, you can use “about” or “regarding” to refer to the specific information provided. For example, “Thank you for the information about your current pricing.”

7. Thank you for all your assistance

If someone has gone out of their way to help you, thank them! If you want to offer more specific recognition for what they have done, follow this sentence with, “I really appreciate your help in resolving the problem.”

6. Thank you raising your concerns

Even if a client or manager writes to express some concerns they have regarding your work, you can still thank them. This shows that you value their input and will take their concerns seriously. Alternatively, you may wish to use, “Thank you for your feedback.”

While thank yous at the beginning of an email are typically written to thank the reader for past actions, thank yous at the end of an email tend to imply you are thanking the reader for a future action. By showing your appreciation in advance, you are more likely to get a positive reaction.

5. Thank you for your kind cooperation

If you need the reader to cooperate by assisting you with something, then thank them in advance for their cooperation. You can add the expression “in advance” to this sentence and say “Thank you in advance for your cooperation.”

4. Thank you for your attention to this matter

Similar to above, this sentence implies that you would appreciate the readers’ further assistance. This expression also shows that the request you have made is important and that the reader should pay special attention to it.

3. Thank you for your understanding

This sentence isn’t to congratulate the reader on understanding the words you have written. We use this sentence to say “Thank you” in advance if we have done something or requested something that may cause inconvenience to the reader.

2. Thank you for your consideration

If you are requesting a benefit or an opportunity, such as when you apply for a new job, end your email with this sentence.

1. Thank you again for everything you’ve done

This sentence, which is used at the end, is a bit different from those above. Use this if you have already thanked the reader at the beginning of the email, but due to their great efforts, you wish to thank them again for their past actions.

Now you know how to say “thank you” in an English email, the only question left is who you want to thank.

11 Unique Ways to Say ‘Thank You’ in an Email

thanks for the email

Below are examples of messages for thanking someone for the information provided.

I write this type of note most often at my office job which requires asking others for information sometimes. So, I usually send the note via email, but depending on your situation, you could hand write the note or choose another method for delivering a thank you listed here.

Thank you for the information tips

  • If replying to an email where someone just gave you the information you needed, responding with "Thank you for the information" or "Thank you for sharing the information" may be sufficient. The best thank you notes are specific. However, when replying to this type of email, you likely do not need to restate what the information was that was just provided.
  • Include how the information was helpful if it isn't clear. Did it help you make a decision? Did you learn something from it? Is someone benefiting for the information? Again, this all depends on what the information was.
  • You can also thank them for the time if it took them getting the information for you was time-consuming.
  • The length of your note may depend on the length of the information. If the information was one sentence in response to a question sent in an email, then a one sentence thank-you response is usually sufficient.
  • Was the information advice or help? If so, check out the Thank you for the advice note examples and Thank you for the help message examples.

thanks for the email

An employee "thank you for applying" email lets job applicants know that their application has been received, and may also set up their expectations for what's next and when they should expect responses. They can also be used to passively screen applicants.

Thank You for Applying Email Example:

[Applicant Name],

Thanks for taking the time to apply for our position. We appreciate your interest in [company name].

We're currently in the process of taking applications for this position. We will begin taking interviews [time frame i.e. in the next two weeks]. If you are selected to continue to the interview process, our human resources department will be in contact with you by [date, or estimated date].

Thank you,

[Your Name]

[Your Position]

That's the basic email. You might want to try out Betterteam's screening email as an alternative. It acknowledges that the application has been received, but it also gets the ball rolling on the hiring process.

The idea is to send applicants 5 questions that take about 20 minutes to answer. This will automatically filter out unmotivated applicants because they won't even bother answering. Furthermore, you'll be able to pick out the good candidates quickly because they've all answered the same questions, making responses easy to compare.

Our sample email includes 5 generic questions that you can use, although we recommend that you tailor them to the particular job as much as possible.

Application Screening Email Example:

[Applicant Name],

Thank you for taking the time to apply for our [title] position. Below is a small test we would like you to tackle which should take no more than 20 minutes. This will help us to understand the way you work and also give us some insight into your skills.

  1. Why did you decide to apply for this job?
  2. What, in your opinion, is the most important task for this job? Why?
  3. List the steps you would normally take to do this task correctly.
  4. What would you do to make your work stand out from the rest?
  5. Can you give me some examples of how you've done this job in the past, and the results you've gotten? Any numbers would be great.

Thanks,

[Your Name]

[Your Title]

FAQs:

How do you respond to a job application email?

You thank the applicant for applying in an email that also contains a few screening questions to judge the applicant's level of interest.

See our Thank You for Applying email template.

How do you acknowledge receipt for a job application?

Also known as an application acknowledgment email, a "thank you for applying" email is a courteous way to thank candidates for their application and can provide further details about interview dates and times.

See a Thank You for Applying email template.

Should I use a thank you for applying auto response?

Yes, we think so. An acknowledgment gives applicants a good impression of your company. It can also save you from having to follow up with emails asking when applicants can expect to hear back, and checking to see if you received their resume.

See a Thank You for Applying email template.

Should my company use the thank you for applying email for screening?

We recommend that any company should use a screening email, with one caveat. You'll want to write a really solid job posting that gets potential applicants excited about the job.

See an example of an Application Screening Email.

How do you end a thank you email?

You can choose to provide details about the interview process and when the candidate can expect to hear from HR, should they pass the screening stage. Alternately, just sign off with your name.
