I am writing a formal email. In the end, it goes like this:

If this..... were to happen, then it would be great.

I am actually asking sth which I am not entitled to and depends entirely upon the receiver to consider it.

So, this is a request, and if accepted it would mean a lot to me (yes, I mean it).

I wish to write in a more subtle way. I wish to change "it would be great" to a more formal manner.

  • @EdwinAshworth Could you please give me a few examples? Thanks! – Ricky May 25 at 14:27

What are the options that you tried? There are several variants to choose from. A few are:

  1. It would mean a lot to me.
  2. I would be much obliged if.
  3. I would be indebted to you.
  4. I'd appreciate it if.
  5. I would be grateful to you.

Hope this helps.
