Do I need to add please with Can you as this is the requesting form?

Can you please forward me the mail ?


Can you forward me the mail ?

To be grammatically correct is not compulsory, but when we are using such sentences in a professional environment, it is better to use "please" when you are asking for something. So the first one is correct.


If you want to make the request even better for a workplace environment, using the conditional (could instead of can) would be most appropriate:

Could you please forward me the mail?
