    Revert Vs Reply

    Hello to Everyone,

    I have a doubt on using the word "
    Revert".

    Shall i use "
    revert" instead of "reply".

    I would like to know when to use "revert" and when to use "reply" especially in mail communications.


    Thanks

    "Revert" cannot be used to mean "reply". Please look at this link: revert - Definitions available for revert from Cambridge Dictionary Online: Free English Dictionary and Thesaurus
