Oi, slave!

Does anyone else find it oddly offensive to receive an internal e-mail beginning 'Dear Colleague'?  It's as if the sender has so little consideration for the recipient that he/she can't even be bothered to offer a greeting ('Hello' is perfectly adequate), never mind use the person's name.  If an external e-mail began so impersonally, there's a good chance that I'd register it as apparently generic and delete it unread.

It doesn't endear the sender to me, and certainly disqualifies the request from priority treatment.

Or maybe I'm just tired and irritable ;)
