We shared this article a few weeks ago on whether the signoff in emails have gone the way of the dodo. Matthew J.X. Malady, the author of the slate piece, feels that they are of a bygone era.

Alternatively, I've seen people use "eom" (for "end of message"), but that feels incredibly cold and distant, going completely against the notion that emails are meant to be personal.
