Hello

I am about to join a new company and need to send an email to my new manager. I have come up with this mail, what do you guys/gals think of it

Dear pablo

I am starting on Thursday and HR informs me that i should contact you this week to get instructions on what to do on my arrival.

Do you have any specific instructions for me. IS there a good time to call you or can you mail me any instructions.

Best Regards
Juan

what do you think i can have as the subject ?

Either title would be ok.
