    Probably just habit from his work emails, or it could be a template which he's set up. Wouldn't be worried tbh, you should ask him why he does it

    Your father e-mails you? 0_0

    Maybe it's just an e-mail signature that's on by default. My e-mails automatically end with a formal reply w/ my contact details etc.

    If my dad emails me half the time it has a massive legal disclaimer. 😅
    Talking formally in an email is fine- it's just how he's used to doing it.
