I just sent my insurance agent an email, and got a reply back, and was struck by the difference in writing tone between the two. I think I'm incapable of not lapsing into formal tone when I write that sort of thing. And then when people write back with an informal-friendly tone, I feel awkward about it.

Not sure what to do about that, but I notice it.

Notice it and figure he is giving you permission to be informal in turn? (I doubt an insurance agent is going to be bothered by getting a first message to "Dear Ms. Smith" instead of "Hello Jane.")

I can imagine it, though I tend to write informally the same way (i.e., having a hard time not lapsing into it). Of course, that's probably the more normal problem to have....
