If you're trying to be correct rather than going for a nonchalant style that shouts "I'm busy," don't forget to proofread the contents of your e-mail message. E-mail spell checkers like all spell checkers aren't foolproof, particularly with misspelled words that wind up as similar words that are spelled correctly.
Take a look also at the headers of your e-mail. The last thing you want is for a flirty message intended for a single recipient a couple of cubicles down to go to a distribution list comprising your entire company.
