Business Letters A business letter is more formal than a personal letter. It should have a margin of at least one inch on all four edges. There are six parts to a business letter. This contains the return address usually two or three lines with the date on the last line.
Sometimes it may be necessary to include a line after the address and before the date for a phone number, fax number, E-mail address, or something similar. Often a line is skipped between the address and date. That should always be done if the heading is next to the left margin.
See Business Letter Styles.
It is not necessary to type the return address if you are using stationery with the return address already imprinted.
Always include the date. This is the address you are sending your letter to.
Make it as complete as possible. Include titles and names if you know them. This is always on the left margin. An inside address also helps the recipient route the letter properly and can help should the envelope be damaged and the address become unreadable. Skip a line after the heading before the inside address.
Skip another line after the inside address before the greeting. Also called the salutation.
The greeting in a business letter is always formal. It normally begins with the word "Dear" and always includes the person's last name.
It normally has a title. Use a first name only if the title is unclear--for example, you are writing to someone named "Leslie," but do not know whether the person is male or female.
For more on the form of titles, see Titles with Names. The greeting in a business letter always ends in a colon. You know you are in trouble if you get a letter from a boyfriend or girlfriend and the greeting ends in a colon--it is not going to be friendly.
