Some days ago I sent an email with an attachment. The recipient replied with the following sentence.

Thanks for kindly sending your profile information. I would get back to you as soon as possible.

What does this reply email mean? What is the actual meaning of I would get back to you as soon as possible?

  • It's likely that he chose the wrong word and probably meant "I will get back to you as soon as possible," a common enough response. However, this sentence is possible: I would get back to you as soon as possible if I weren't undergoing surgery. – Zan700 Aug 21 '16 at 17:38

"would get back to you" means that he/she will contact you again.

In your sentence, he meant that he has some stuff to do, and then he will contact you again after that.
