As the title points out, I don't want to say "I will send you an e-mail again" to somebody. Instead, I try to rephrase that sentence, so does "knock your door" address the same meaning in an e-mail conversation?

  • That depends on the intellect of the listener!

    I'd have certainly understood that in that context. It's a light talk to me; just to have fun. However, beware; it is an idiom and it is not good if not in between friends for fun!

No, that does not have the same meaning.

In a professional or respectful setting, a good option would be

I will get back to you (next week).

The (next week) part is optional.

Just as a fun sidenote, if you're talking to very close friends in a very colloquial setting, you could say "I'll hit you up (later)." This is slang in the United States for texting/calling/communicating with someone later. This definitely shouldn't be used in any sort of setting with coworkers or even family.


No, that would not make sense.

I will knock (on) your door

does't really have any other meaning other than literally knocking on someone's door.
Knock usually takes a preposition.

I suppose you could use the slang

I'll come knocking

which means I will come look for you, but it implies physically going and looking, and it might be a stretch. However, if you still need a phrase that has a physical contact connotation, then :

I'll be in touch

is possible, and by email can always be added at the end :

I'll be in touch by email.

but that has the quality of being in contact in general, not specifically about emails.

Are you asking about sending an initial email, a followup email, or an additional email?
I find the again in your question ambiguous

  • hi @Peter, this will be a follow-up e-mail, to end the conversation (until next week.).

  • Since it sounds like you specifically don't want to mention the word email, "I'll ping you"" can be used since pinging can have a meaning more specific to emailing when used properly

    Pinging would not be understood by many. That would be very generational, and casual. Dec 16, 2015 at 12:05
