|Dear native speakers, |
Does this mean that that the sender hopes the addresse is well or does it mean something different?
Dear Mr x
*I hope this email finds you well*. I am querying our invoice 300.7864, which
is now overdue. Could you please confirm when it will be settled?
With kind regards
|I hope you are well|
Yes, it means the writer hopes that all is well with the addressee (everything is going OK for the addressee).

Yes, it refers to the recipient.
It´s a rather archaic phrase though, in my opinion.
