    One of my biochemistry lecturers used to sign "Kind regards" and for some reason it appeals to me greatly. Then again, if someone responds with a simple 'regards' in return, I feel a little bit snubbed!

    For more casual business, I use 'thanks' or 'cheers', but 'hugs and kisses' is looking good.

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone.

    Speak soon.

    Other things might work for you as well.

    (Tacitly, though, I usually mean "Thanks for working with me on this" or some other permutation.)
    I'd go with Jennifer on this. "Thanks for working with me on this" is probably the underlying meaning of signing a casual business e-mail with "Thanks." See also "Thanks for your kindness/pleasantness." Even if they just did a favor for you and sign the e-mail with "Thanks," they could just mean "Thanks for your pleasantness in asking a favor of me."

    I also like Ivy's post.

    Same here.

    Sometimes I'll write:

    Thank you for your responsiveness,
    I will touch base with you soon,
    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance,

    Regards,
    Best,

    If it seems appropriate, I get all NF'ey on folks with the following business closers:

    Hope [the meeting goes well/the rest of the week goes smoothly/you can use this, etc.]
    Good luck [with _____________]
    Enjoy [the rest of the week/day/your vacation, etc.]
    Until [next time/then]
    See you [at the next conference, on Monday, etc.]
    Speak to you soon,

    You could probably even use:
    'Stay safe'
    'Keep warm'
    etc.

    Depending on the context...

    Or not.

    I find work emails so incredibly boring, and I imagine office life on their end to be pretty tedious. So if I have a reasonable expectation that they won't find it unprofessional I sometimes like to insert something kooky or strange to break up the tedium. As a self-employed person I probably have liberties that an employee doesn't have, though.

    Some, but not all of, the best,
    Ivy
