The first variant sounds a little warmer and more personal. The second one has a more formal tone. So your choice will probably depend mostly on how emotionally close you are to your coworker.
I think a more assertive and professional tone would be: I will be out of office on June 18th ( Wednesday). Please let me know if it causes any inconvenience to business operations. If such is the case, I can plan a different date. Or if you need that leave urgently and can not alter it under any circumstances, then do not leave the matter open for ...
I wouldn't capitalize "all". Collections aren't used as a proper noun. If you were to say, "Tell them to come here in 5 minutes.", you wouldn't capitalize "them". That being said, I really wouldn't start an email with "Hi, all". There's technically nothing wrong with it, but it feels odd.

By the way I forgot to add that... Forgot to mention that... .... is perfect for informal emails.
You can use either P.S. or N.B. For informal articles, P.S. is the apt choice. P.S. being post scriptum, and N.B. (nota bene) if it is something important you want to draw the reader's attention to.

Often the best way to indicate that you have understood is to summarize in one sentence what your understanding will lead you to do next. e.g., "I understand. I will get back to you with the revisions you requested by Monday." or "I see. I will make sure to include or discuss your idea that .... in my next paper."
Understood, thanks. or I understand, thanks. Is clear, and polite.
