Now that most correspondence is done electronically, is it still correct or sensible to say:
Please find enclosed my resume/invoice/proposal… etc
or is it more appropriate to use “attached”
Please find attached my resume…etc
since in emails you talk about “an attachment” and not “an enclosure”.
Thanks in advance for your comments and opinions.

Grammar GeekI say "attached" for e-mails and "enclosed" for regular mail.I've seen both 'attached' and 'enclosed' used for regular mail.
attached would mean something attached to the letter (with a staple for example)
enclosed would mean in the same envelope but not attached to the letter.
Nona The BritIf it is regular mail thenI agree with you.
