    Dear Mr Wilson,

    I am writing this email in order to bring into you notice that I will not be able to continue my services with ABC company effective from June 20, 2013. This is because I may have to move out of town permanently. Furthermore, I am not satisfied with the salary that I am being paid.

    Working with the ABC company team was a worthwhile experience which will really help me with my future endeavours. However, according to the resignation policy of the company, I will keep performing my duties to my full capacity until my resignation is due. Please contact me if you happen to have any queries or if you feel the need of additional information from me.

    Yours sincerely

    Thanking you
