Sending an email

One of the easiest ways to practice English is with a penpal via email. But what about the format of a message? What if you want to send an email message to a company? How should you write it?

If you are familiar with the person you are writing to you are able to get away with being informal. On the other hand, if you do not know the person you need to be more formal. Take a look at the following sample email.
