For normal cover letters, you can start by saying sth like "In response to the advertisement..., I would like to apply ... ...".
For a mail asking for your resume, you may say sth like "Thank you very much for your interest in me. I'm very glad to send you my detailed CV. Please feel free to contact me to furnish you more details face to face."

Hi, you’re a Mandarin speaker? Maybe remember this: NI xu yao shi he ni de gong zuo. If the boss expects a covering letter, then write it! English is very tricky. Maybe express yourself very clearly in Mandarin according to the principles you learned at college. A good covering letter to a Western company needs more than correct English language. May I suggest that you find examples of resumes and covering letters on the net? Really, it is best to cut and paste from professional letters; it’s easier and more professional too. I’m happy to help with examples of professional resumes and covering letters. Keep writing, it’s free!
Thank you jiaoqiang1 and wumanfu, please correct this cover letter I prepared.

Hi, this is very impressive; you’ve got strong 4GL skills and you’re familiar with legacy systems developed in COBOL. Apart from that you’re good with Pearl and CGI too. It sounds great. I’d like to take a raincheck regarding your covering letter; it deserves some careful thought. Also, I’d like to read what jiaoqiang1 writes because he’s an IT professional.

Hi Inglish,
