I am writing abusiness one e-mail to two individuals. Is it ok to open the letter by separately saying "Hi" to each of them, for example:
"Hi Mr N, Hi Mrs S,
Thank you, Astra
Like Sanjay said, "hi" is an informal greeting. But email is such a casual medium that even business emails tend to use informal language. Still, repeating "hi" sounds a little awkward. You'd be better off writing it once at the beginning:
Hi Mr. N and Mrs. S,
I've also seen people turn their greetings into brief sentences in business emails:
Hi, Mr. N and Mrs. S.
A more formal version (maybe too formal for email) would be:
Dear Mr. N and Mrs. S:
It really depends on how well you know them, what your relationship is with them and what sort of business you and they are in. But I hope this helps!
