Okay, im all for being laid back when you have a good relationship and emailing back and fourth. But seriously below is the email i just got, requesting to talk to me about their companies capabilities. - the person refereed to me as "C" unless i am so old that i don't understand what the means.....

C, My VP asked me to follow up to find out if you would be available for a 30-minute introductory phone conversation with him anytime Sept 12, 13, 14, 17-21 or 24-28?

He/she probably knows only your C77 screenname :)
I get these requests too, mostly from East Asian vendors, I simply do not pay attention unless it is directly interesting for a project.

It sounds more like Chevis got an email from a USA supplier. It isn't formal at all for the first contact, so maybe it's the uninterested intern getting tasks ticked off for the day.

I've even had a Chinese plastic mold tool supplier repeatedly call my workplace in Australia during working hours to discuss capabilities with me after finding my LinkedIn. It's too bad that we are a sheet metal factory.

Although this seems like quite an insider thread, here's my 3 cents' worth: It may be an honest mistake. The sender may have assumed familiarity when there was none. Sometimes, I get mails from my instructors that begin with "Hey," or "M" (M is the first letter of my name).

Just thought I'd share this here :)
