Mistakes in the Email
If you are expecting a response to any questions you are asking someone, your email should look professional and error free ( Typos and Grammar) to most extent. One of two mistakes is fine, but email like above is completely unacceptable.

- …86%.my two = 86%. My [ There should be a single space after Full Stop]
