    Default send in or send at

    Hello. I am trying to see if the verb send is followed by in or at.

    For example:

    I would be grateful if you could send me a new user-id and a password in/at my working address

    I would like to thank you in advance for your help.
    Best Regards
    Alex.

    Good morning. Maybe (maybe) something like:

    (1) I would be very grateful if you could send a new user-id and password to me at my work address.

    Thanks for the reply! What doesn't fit very well is the and password to me .. that's why I tried to use send me rather than to me.

    (1) You have made an excellent point.

    (2) It is ONLY my opinion that I would be more comfortable writing it as I did. To me at my work address = To my work address.

    (3) Let's look at your nice sentence:

    ... send me a new user-I.D. and password at my work address. =
    ... send (to) me a new user-I.D. and password at my work address.

    (i) I think (think) your sentence is grammatically fine.

    (ii) I feel, however, that it MIGHT be a bit confusing to the reader at first. That is, the sentence seems to refer to an I.D. and password AT your work address.

    (a) I believe, however, that you are referring to the person (me) AT the work address.

    (4) Hopefully, one of the great teachers at this website will soon answer you. Whatever s/he says will be the correct answer.

    Have a nice day!

    Hello again.

    If you wish to use an indirect object, then I guess you could also write:

    ...send me at my work address a new user-I.D. and password.
