In general for closings, I tend to use: "Best,"

Whenever I receive emails beginning by
Dear Sir/Madam
I tend not to know how they end.

How about
"Hi tgt,
blablabla
Cheers,
Humanino"
?

While on the topic, what is the literal meaning of 'Yours Sincerely' and 'Yours Faithfully'. I know you use it to end a message, but what are you actually saying?

In the middle ages "bye" would be: "May I be so audacious to assure you, sir, to be your humble servant"

I used to have a professor that would always end emails with,

"Always and Truthfully Yours,"
"Dr. Doe"

Kind of creeped me out.

I never say anything. I write my email and then I leave a space and write my name. If Im emailing someone professional like a prof or my boss I sometimes say:
Thank you for your time,
x

What if you were only asking simple questions in the email? How would you end it?

A little Buzz Lightyearish I'd say. But certainly an agreeable enough sentiment.

A few simple questions to someone you don't know, or don't know well...

Regards,
Kind regards,
Best regards.

or maybe just...

Thank you,
Thank you for your time,

or more casually...

Thanks *name of person*,
