Formal letters can be either personalized or it can be official letters, one feature is common in both that is appreciation. The other word for appreciation is a thank you hence formal appreciation letters are written in a friendly manner thus taking care that no harsh words are used. Appreciation can be expressed in many ways. Some express it through promotions or in some other fields, appreciation is expressed by greeting the person personally for his better doing.
