This is one of the main reasons, I am learning on this website to improve my writing skills. I have a C1 level on speaking and I have to write business emails on a daily bases.

I received emails like these ones last time I changed my job. I remember I needed to align time and place and since the company who was interviewing me was in a different country we scheduled many conference calls by Skype.

No, I don't receive like this email because people in my country don't use the email widely.

In fact, I didn't write emails like that kind, but I emailed to courses only, and I didn't try that sort of emails before, but I'll be improve my skills to write "working emails" to offices, companies or associations.
