How would you rank the above-mentioned 5 alternatives in order to ask someone politely to do something?
1. Veuillez laisser un message.
2. Laissez un message.
3. Laisser/ez un message, s'il vous plaît.
4. Merci de laisser un message.
5. Nous vous invitons à laisser un message.
I have seen "veuillez" used in a number of situations where the intention is to make a very polite request.
The others may work but I see number two as being quite curt. Maybe a native French speaker may not agree that this is curt.
