Is this an okay message to receive? How would you feel after receiving this message? Would you reply, or does the message suggest that the next contact would come from the sender?




Hi *******,

Wishing you a very Happy New Year

Yes, Im due to travel back to University tomorrow - as per my original message I was only ever going to stay until 5th as I have much to do in preparation for this term.

Im really disappointed that we haven't been able to get any firm plans in place. I know I'm quite complicated when it comes to communication but I do find it really difficult and have needed support to have the confidence to write and send messages to you - believe me I do find my own limitations very frustrating! I may be back at home at Easter and would suggest that I let you know the dates for that when Im clear on if and when that will be. Hopefully I won't be too overwhelmed with my final year deadlines, and if you'd like to meet you could then send me your availability so that we can make a firm plan which would ease my over-analytic mind!

Best wishes

*******

You have to reply with your availability, as said.

They sound like too much work. I hope they’re not wishing you a happy new year in March.

Do you mean that the sender should contact me again with their availability, or that I should reply to their message with mine?

I don't understand why you're opening with happy new year when it's March, but I guess that's up to you. Also, if this is a professional e-mail then you should check your grammar.

I think it's asking you to send availability, might be wrong but it seems that is the first course of action, but yeah send a nice reply as well. If you want to meet that is...if not just send a nice reply sending your best wishes ect.

I would suggest that the sender to get rid of personal information and personal feeling if the sender and receiver are under formal and professional environment. The receiver should reply back to the sender with available dates he/she can meet
